This week's featured artist is the SUPER talented Godelieve! I have admired her blog, Stamping Mathilda for quite some time. All of her creations are really stunning pieces of artwork. You can also check them out on flickr. Here is our first inspiration card by Godelieve:Godelieve's stamping and distressing create quite an intricate scene. I also love how she has paired her scene with the bold black and white accents of the border and sentiment--very striking! Finally, I just can't get enough of this design featuring an intricate center panel, bordered by black, and the softness of the rounded corners of the white card base.
Here is my take:
I began by stamping and coloring the butterflies using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Markers. The background was colored using Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, and Broken China). The foliage was then stamped using Forest Moss Distress Ink. The torn tag with the sentiment was distressed using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. All stamps Hero Arts (CL497 Find Joy, CL428 Earth Flowers, CL383 Antique Engravings).
Thanks again for stopping by. I'll see you tomorrow with our next awesome card by Godelieve. Oh, and if you missed it, be sure to check out my Sketchbook Sunday post from yesterday by either scrolling down or clicking HERE. HUGS!
