love u...

Hello friends!!  Thanks so much for all the lovely comments you left for my AJVD post... it really made my day!  Yesterday I had a super productive crafty day (one of the most productive I have had in a long time!!) and I got four cards made!!  Two I can't post until next week so stay tuned!  The card I'm sharing today was the last one I made and I think my favorite of the bunch.  I will be posting this one to ColourQ and Freshly Made Sketches.



It is no secret that I love the Stampin Up! set Kinda Eclectic and that I love collage stamping.  So when I saw the new sketch from FMS I just had to use that set and create a little collage!  When I started stamping all the images I had stamped the sunburst image using the pale lavenderish ink (SU!'s Wisteria Wonder) and then light blue ink (SU!'s Marina Mist).  But once I had done the stamping I noticed how the lavender ink still remained firmly in the foreground... not the look I was going for and to be honest I wasn't expecting that would be the outcome.  So I switched the two and achieved a better result in my ink layering.  Live and learn, lol! I finished up by stamping the sentiment (from Altenew's Label Love) in the dark blue ink (SU! Midnight Muse) and then the butterfly in the dark pink (SU!'s Melon Mambo).  A few sequins were added for just a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Smoky Slate; Stamps:  Stampin Up! and Altenew; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh clear; Punch:  Stampin Up!
