GSG Color Challenge #1

GSG Color Challenge #1

Here’s another card for a Great Swaps Girls challenge: the first color challenge (Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, and So Saffron). The card also matches the layout from Beate’s weekend sketch challenge.

I wanted to use my For a Friend stamp set and the Time Well Spent butterflies were such a perfect match. I used the out-of-the-box technique on the top butterfly and added a cut-out butterfly, adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional, next to it. The grass was hand-drawn with a Certainly Celery marker on the watercolor paper. I colored the candle in the sentiment with a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by!
