So much going on in this card!

First of all, this is my first card using one of Impression Obsession's stamps by new artist Gail Green of "Sweet Petatoes" fame - these stamps are fun and funky and super detailed, which makes them fun to color. I colored this guy, Jasper with Butterflies, with Prismacolor pencils, and as requested, below is a list of the pencils I used. Cool, huh? heh heh.... I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the butterflies and on Jasper's little face.

For the background, I chose some coordinating inks and swiped them onto white cardstock, then layered 2 Cover-a-Card background stamps - Large Paisley and Medallion - over the top in varying shades of brown. I stamped Petal Flourish up the side, and sponged the edges, then drew in a light tool line around the edge of the panel with a fine-tipped brown marker. The cotton gingham ribbon was a local find.

I left my card sentiment-less on the front - I'm finding I need more cards that are left 'multi-purpose' for things that come up unexpectedly - this could go 'birthday' or 'thanks' or 'friendship' or 'encouragment' at a moment's notice.

Hope you had a blessed weekend - I totally vegged on Friday and got a lot done Saturday morning (despite my cough and puffed up eye) while DH took the kids to an Easter party (for a few hours, a clean and quiet house ... ahhh...). Sunday was church and potluck, then lesson plans for health class and homeschool... another busy week!

Thanks for stopping by!
