Today's card was made for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge:
When I first saw the sketch I thought there was no way I could do it, but then an idea popped into my head and here's what I came up with (you can click to enlarge to see all the detail):
The sentiment is called To Risk and is from Verve Stamps. I got out my super old (and discontinued) Mostly Animals stamp positioner (which is a fixed positioner so you can stamp your image multiple times without worrying about it moving) and stamped the sentiment in blush ink, then smeared a little olive ink on parts of the stamp with my finger and stamped again. It might have been easier just to ink my stamp with the 2 different inks at once, but I was worried that the colors would mix and get muddy. I knew doing it in layers this way would keep the colors separate and clean.
The 2 bigger butterfly punches are both Martha Stewart and the tiny one is a Fiskars hand punch. The ribbon is hand-dyed and scrunched seam binding that I've been seeing everywhere and had to try! I love the results so you'll be seeing a lot more of this stuff on my cards from now on, especially since the roll came with 100 yards!! I hope you like it and TFL!
