STAMPlorations Inspiration #69

Well, it's a sunny day here but cold.  We've dropped below freezing again for a few days but we'll be warming up again soon.  It's nice to see the sun out even if it's chilly.  :-)

So, it's Tuesday and that means it's time for another Inspiration post over at STAMPlorations!  Lately, I've been trying to use coloured card stock as my card base instead of white.  I still use white A LOT but its been fun to try different colours.  For today's card I used a light teal colour.  Take a look...

I stamped my butterflies (Winged Things set) with Versamark ink and embossed them in white.  I did the same for the sentiment (Big Greetings set).  I coloured in a couple of the butterflies and the "note" part of the sentiment using my Spectrum Noir markers.  I filled in a couple of the other butterflies with Wink of Stella.  I used WoS on the sentiment as well.  You can see the sparkle better in the detail photo.  It was a simple card to make but it turned out quite pretty, I think.

Well, I hope you'll all pop on over to the main blog and check out all the fabulous projects the DT has made.  Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!
