Hello! Today I have a card to share using a stencil and colouring with my alcohol markers. I also, have a decision to make and hopefully, I can get some of your input. I'll talk more about that later. Today's card was brought to you by the letter S and the number 3. LOL. It really came about from the sketch challenge over at Inkspirational.
Fun sketch, right? So I'm linking up again there as well as at Spectrum Noir's monthly challenge which is "anything goes" and at Addicted to Stamps and More who also have and "anything goes" challenge right now. I'm going to link up to Virginia's View as well. She's got a stencil challenge going on right now. Anyway, here's my card...
First I took my white panel and using some washi tape I masked off my diagonal section. I took my mini echoes stencil (The Crafters Workshop) and sponged gold ink (Color Box) making it lighter as I got further out. I removed the washi tape and adhered this to my dark blue card base. Then I printed off the butterfly (digi stamp from) and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir markers (TB1, TB3, TB6, BGR1, BGR3, True Black. I fussy cut it out and then attached it to the card with a little bit off glossy accents just on the body part of the butterfly so I could bend the wings up a bit. Then I drew in the antennae and added the iridescent bling. When I first saw the sketch I immediately thought it reminded me of a butterfly. :-). I'm quite pleased with the results. I love my Spectrum Noir markers. So fun to colour with. Need to get more of the ink refills as some of my markers are running dry! Gasp!! :-)
So, the decision I mentioned earlier. I'm thinking of switching my blog from blogger to Wordpress. I'm not liking the changes I've been hearing about recently. Forcing everyone to switch to a google + which as I understand puts more of your info out there which I'm uncomfortable with. People have been having issues with the google friend connect which apparently, has been happening with my blog too. I don't really want to switch over but I'm thinking it may be best but I just don't know. Maybe some of you more experienced bloggers may have some suggestions or advice? I don't want make things difficult for my existing followers either. Le sigh. Anyway, it'll take me some time I think to make a decision. :-)
Thanks for coming by and visiting. Have a wonderful day!
