Rainbows and Flowers

Best of Flowers, Baltimore Regional, Sketch Challenge, Stampin' Up!This is another Stampin’ Up! sketch challenge.  It’s not “officially” endorsed by Stampin’ Up, but a group of demonstrators create a sketch each week for us to use in a card or scrapbook page layout and post it on the Stampin’ Up! forum.  They’ve been doing this for years, and the sketches are always different and amazing!

This sketch was created by Liz Goldhawk.  Technically the butterfly should be on the other side, but since I knotted the ribbon there, I’m thinking it still follows the rules (which is really easy, because there really aren’t any rules!).

This is a really simple card – which I’m not good at.  But I wanted to use one of the “rainbow” techniques that were demonstrated at the Baltimore Stampin’ Up! regional event.  I used Stampin’ Write markers and a clear block to create the effect.  I used block I, and drew a fat line down the center of the block with Daffodil Delight, then continued from the center out with the other markers.  When I finished, the colors (in order) were Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Pacific Point, and Rich Razzleberry.  (So, basically, ROY G BV.)  Spritz the block with water, then stamp on Whisper White cardstock.  Wait for it to soak in, then remove the block.  Easy!!

When the paper dried, I stamped the flowers (Best of Flowers) in Pacific Point ink.  I had some background paper left over after I trimmed it to fit the card, so I stamped the butterfly (Best of Butterflies) on it with Versamark and embossed with black powder.  It’s been a couple days, and it’s hard to tell on the computer image, but I’m fairly sure that’s Rich Razzleberry under the Pacific Point/background layers on a Summer Starfruit card.  This is a technique we’ll be learning at the May technique class, so be sure to sign up!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy – and have a wonderful day.
