At Inkspirations this week we use the following sketch to create our cards.
I decided to give myself the challenge of using scraps and leftover pieces of card. More often than not, I tend to pull out a new piece cardstock and then have lots of leftover card that I promise myself I’ll use eventually. I’ve used Basic Black, Very Vanilla & Crumb Cake. As I’m addicted to the daubers at the moment, I sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake and roughed them up by distressing them. I pulled out my Very Vintage jumbo wheel and managed to get the butterfly stamped in the right spot (doesn’t happen very often). I then stamped the flourishes and flowers from Vintage Vogue (love this stamp set!) and then sat for ages trying to work out what to put in the middle of the flourishes. In the end I went with the Eiffel Tower from Artistic Etchings. I almost forgot, I used a Crumb Cake piece of scrap from a Fancy Favour Box for an edge instead of using a punch – I knew someday I would eventually use it!
