OSA Sketch Layout #9

I'm sorry I've been MIA here lately and haven't posted any cards, I haven't been feeling too well the last couple of days with a monster migraine, so have been keeping away from the computer. I managed to make a card for the OSA Challenge Layout #9 a few days ago, so here it is!


The stamp I used is by See D's, who I think are now Inque Boutique stamps. I've stamped it with Black Versafine ink, coloured it with a white Prismacolor pencil, then coloured over the white with a Peacock Green Prismacolor pencil. Using a white pencil underneath allows the top colour to show through on the dark coloured cardstock.

The black strips of cardstock are embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and I've layered ribbon over them. I've thought outside the square and used a butterfly instead of the round shape in the sketch. The Far East butterfly diecut has some red/gold holographic stickers added for interest.

The burgundy card is edged with Black ink.........that's it, nice and simple!

Lovely card/layout Lyn and I thought the butterfly idea just super too. You reminded me about using pencils; something I never think to do. Also important hint about white first on dark c/stock; thanks!
