Sketch Form Butterfly and Zippy Dots


MemoryBoxSketchFormButterfly-MemoryBoxZippyDots-OpenStudioPinpointRectangleLayers-OpenStudioSmile-JeanOkimoto-ImagineCrafts-Kaleidacolor-Brilliance-VersaFine-VersaMark-ImpressCardsAndCraftsSo many butterflies, so little time - use the beautiful Sketch Form Butterfly to capture a bit of the fleeting  summer.   There are so many great butterfly stamps, dies and stencils in our collection that it's hard to chose just one for a card.   Jean Okimoto here today - with a Kaleidacolored  butterfly card.  

We're double-dipping with the Caribbean Sea inkpad here - for the watercolored background, and the Sketch Form Butterfly.  It's a quick matchup - and some of my favorite colors too!

Zippy Dots, stencilled in Pearlescent Jade, softens the seriousness of the bold butterfly and plays up the Pinpoint Rectangle Layer border.   Deep thinking.

Add a quick greeting - from the Open Studio Smile clear stamp set...and there's your card!


Please visit our Ideas Gallery for detailed directions and supply lists.

Big thanks to everyone who took Sunday's Color, Create and Enjoy class at Impress!  Hope you liked the 8 cards, artsy colors and techniques I shared from the July Look Book.

 Thanks for visiting - hope you'll return for another card this evening...




Great cards...the one with the dogs just made me smile...I would have to substitute cats, but same idea. LOL
