This is the card I made for Danni’s Flutter-by-Wednesday. The challenge was to create a scene and also to use very little or no designer/patterned paper along with your butterfly or fairy. My first thought was how can I make something with out DP that looks like DP. Then I remembered a couple of techniques that were on Stamp TV that I wanted to try. One was to emboss with Nestabilities and the other was to make a sky background. You can watch Gina K show these techniques at Stamp TV. The stamps are Trendy Trees, Branch Out, and Happy Everything from SU. The inks I used are Bashful Blue, Pacific Point and Chocolate Chip also from SU. The pink was Memento Angel Pink. I used my Copic markers to color the grass. The ribbon is something I had. I used blue and pink because I thought this would make a nice card to give someone when they announced a baby on the way. The people I work with are two ages. The age to have a baby and the age to be a grandparent. I am sure someone will be getting this card during the school year.
