Discover Your Wings!!
Played in the Curtain Call Color Challenge this week. Usually shy away from these a little {really not sure why} and when I first looked at the colors- I loved them!!- but, wasn't sure I could get them into a card!! Also, used Taylor's sketch challenge from Friday. Have had this set "Discover Your Wings" for a while and hadn't inked up all of the images yet!! Used the watercolor re-inker technique on the butterfly and added a few pearls. Using the neutrals really makes the "red" pop!! Here's my card....


Here's the sketch....


The Colors.....


TFL!!

Ingredients
Stamps: Taylored Expressions Discover Your Wings {Nancy McKinney}
Paper: textured soft suede, sahara sand, vanilla, black
Ink: black, re-inkers
Accessories: lacey nestabilities, black pearls, lace {matches sahara sand paper}
P.S. Definitely need blogger for dummies as no matter how hard I tried, couldn't get this blogger edit to do 2 hyperlinks!!! Sure it is MY issue!!!
