I really tried to get to the Featured Stamper card on SCS yesterday! When I saw artsy_em's gallery, one time through wasn't enough. I spent so much time enjoying her gallery, that the day was about gone! I did get the card done last night. But it was so late, I didn't take the time to post. This is the card I CASEd.
I used a different stamp and butterfly but kept the colors and layout the same. I chose not to sponge around the edges and keep it clean & simple.
I bought this stamp, Elizabeth, a while back and had never used it. I think I will be using it a lot now that I tried it out! Did you know that you can get this stamp free during Sale-a-bration? For every $50.00 in merchandise that you purchase from now until March 31st, you can get a free stamp set or even select embellishments. If you would like a Sale-a-bration Catalog, let me know and I will mail you one.
I stamped it twice, once on a scrap. I stamped the sentiment in the oval on the scrap and cut it out so it could be popped up!
A little hint for those of you who, like me, can't stamp straight and have to "eyeball" stuff. I started the main image on a piece of WW a little bit bigger than what I needed so that I could get it centered when I trimmed it up.
My butterfly was in my box of left overs. I didn't have any twine that would work for the body. I love the way Emily twisted and tied the twine on hers! I used some of the black seed beeds left over from my jewelry making days.
If I had the time, I could CASE several more of her cards. Lots of inspiration in her gallery.
