I like challenges because, besides being fun to have my cards out there for all of you to see, they provide me with the guide lines to create my cards. Some really push me out of my comfort zone and others just give my mojo a sweet little kick to get me started.
This is the card I made for this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I used the always pretty SU Corner Garden which is considered a background stamp. So far, I've only used it in parts, like in this card, but it can be use whole and it's gorgeous.
I used my SU write markers and the aqua painter to color this image, somehow, at least for me, I find it easier to color just parts of it, instead of the whole stamp. Here is a close up of this pretty blooms. The little butterfly was stamped with the Papillion Potpourri and punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch.
This is the sketch that inspired this card, I just used it upside down. Hope it's ok.
Till next time, paper hugs to all.
