Inspired by...Stephanie *Day 3*

This next inspiration card from Stephanie is going to knock your socks off!
Stephanie's card is a true work of ART!
Here's my take:
I began by stamping Penny Black 40-102 Dreamy using Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Markers.  Then I added darker shading to the flowers with very sharp Faber-Castell Art Grip Colored Pencils.  The background was inked with Old Paper and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.  I then stamped Penny Black 2025M Music Note Background, removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping. The brown butterflies (Penny Black 30-117 Free Flight) were stamped with VersaMagic chalk ink.   I adhered patterned paper to the back side of this stamped piece before folding down the corners.  Sentiment by Penny Black, 30-117 Free Flight.  Punched butterflies by Martha Stewart.

Thanks for visiting! I can't wait to share our next inspiration card by Stephanie!

The patterned paper corner is a lovely touch & the way you matched each one to the stamped flowerhead is so effective. The white of the butterflies really catches the eye & I always love your use of twine & pearls.
