Stamp Something ,,,,,Bugs and Butterflies

Hi again ,,, hope the sun is shining wherever you are :-) another week has flown by and I hope you are all looking forward to a weekend of fun :-)

This week the theme on the Stamp Something Challenge is ,,,,

Stamp ,,,, Bugs and Butterflies :-)

We are sponsored by Stampelkallan so a fab prize for one lucky entrant Smile

For my card I used this very cute stamp by Gillian Roberts called Looking At You. I coloured her with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. The papers are from My Minds Eye Hattie paper pack. The butterfly is a MS monarch punch and the ribbon and charm were in my stash. I added Star Dust stickles and Robins Nest Dew Drops for sparkle. I faux stitched all the edges and the sentiment is from the Wild Rose Studio :-)

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so please hop over to the challenge blog to see them Smile

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-) I used an Anya stamp, this one is in a set of 3 called Rain, Snow, Shine ,,,, no prizes for guessing which one I used :-) I coloured her with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. I made the background design myself using my Copic Air Brush and a Spellbinders scalloped nestie to make clouds, the flip flop paper I have had forever and have no idea where that came from ! I made a ‘sun’ using a petal cap and inspirational epoxy sticker and the butterfly was made using a MS Monarch Butterfly punch, I added a star using my brand sparkly new Die-namics stacking star die,, I LOVE this !! The sentiment was in an unmounted HM set.
