Sharing in Your Sorrow…



Screen Shot 2015-05-15 at 12.21.28 PMHappy Saturday Morning!  Hope your day is off to a good start!  It’s color week over at Just Us Girls and Ina has a great trio of colors for us/you to try!  The colors are Burgundy, orange and gold/yellow…and of course neutrals are always welcome.  Before I embarked on making this card I had been eyeing a couple other challenges this week.  I decided to incorporate our color challenge with this great photo inspiration over at The Card Concept.  These butterflies are amazing…aren’t they?  Then I went hunting for a sketch, and didn’t have to look very far, when I found this great simple sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Love when the sketches leave you some versatility of your own…and this sketch does just that.  I almost put my sentiment in the wrong spot….it was a close one.

Card Details:  The background was sponged using a great Heidi swap stencil that is fairly new to me.  I used a combo of 3 inks -Brick Red from Tim Holtz and Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral from SU.  The SU butterflies and flower were heat embossed and inked as well with the same colors.   The leaves are a thin-lit die from SU along with the sentiment too.  The background dotted paper is from Creative Memories and has to be at least 15+ years old.  No joke!
I was inspired to heat emboss my butterflies because of those beautiful white lines in the CC photo.  I would also describe my style for this card as Clean and Layered.  Hope you are intrigued by these FMS Final 191-001 37colors and decide to join the JUGS team and our Guest Designer for the month Ros Crawford!   Take care,  Nanc’
