Printed the image off on Kraft brown cardstock and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. Printed off an extra butterfly, fussy-cut it and attached it to the inside sentiment which is from a Whimsy digi set named "Vintage Sentiments." You can find it [for just $3.]

My second card for this posting also is a floral card that features an image named "Faythe's Cherry Flowers" from Tiddly Inks. [You can find it HERE. You can also nab a free colored version HERE.] I tried a new technique with this card- 3-D Paper Piecing. You can find directions HERE. I also found a simplified version HERE. I printed the image on Kraft brown cardstock, then printed copies of her bouquet and dress, colored them, fussy-cut them, then set them aside.
Fayth is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen. [The colors are a little iridescent because I photographed the card near a window, so I guess that sunlight can distort the color a bit?] When all the separate pieces were colored, I burnished them, then layered all onto a card base that includes a strip of lovely lace and a few layers of dotted background paper. This allows me to enter the card into the current Tiddly Ink challenge, "Let's Get Dotty." I added a handful of pretty pink sequin "dots" to make sure that it was truly Dotty. So fun. I also added a few sequins, and one spray of flowers to the inside sentiment, which is from a Whimsy digi set named "Vintage Sentiments." You can find it [for just $3.] Am entering this into several challenges, including Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge [used the required purple and added orange and Kraft brown. The twist is lace.]

My final card for this challenge is a wedding card that features several items from my scrapbook stash. The grey frame includes an oval cut out that highlights a sweet little wedding couple stamp which is a long retired image from either Hero Arts or Printworks. [I can't remember which and removed the image from the wood mount years ago.] I fussy-cut the sparkly flowers from a sheet of scrapbook paper. The grey and white striped paper was upcycled from the inside of a box that held my husband's new leather wallet. The matching inside includes fussy-cut flowers, a scrap of ribbon and a vellum sentiment from my scrapbook stash. Am entering this into several challenges, including Outlawz Saturday Challenge [Love occurs all around the world.]
