SSD #65 - Happy Birthday!

It's another SSD Sketch Tuesday and this week is another great one, but sadly the last from our sketch artist Lea Lawson. We've had so much fun with her sketches and have loved seeing all of the Guest DT members cards!

Here is the final February sketch.

Do you ever have a card in mind and it turns out nothing like you pictured? Ya, that would be this card, ha! I still like it though and would like to recreate the emboss resist at another time since I think this butterfly stamp from Heartsong looks awesome with this technique!

To acheive this look, take a white square of cardstock, clear emboss the butterfly, and then sponge ink over top of the stamped image. Wipe off the embossed butterfly to reveal the white beneath...such a fun look! I also added some glitter (with score tape) to dress it up a little bit. I really like these colors together and definitely want to do another card similiar to this in the future!

Make sure to visit the other "Stamp Tramps" to see what they created, or visit the SSD Blog!
