One Layer Note


I made time this morning to sit, relax and create, as this afternoon I am back at the hospital for a check up. One of the 'lil beans hadn't grown as much as the other at last weeks scan and they were laid awkwardly so they decided to bring me back a week early. 

Anyway, I saw Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge seen HERE and below on Facebook last night and when I saw the butterflies I had a 'lil tiny bit of mojo return. 

I know that on a sketch the elements don't have to be the shape as seen on the sketch, but sometimes a literal interpretation is the way forward and gets the creativity flowing...

I chose three of my new WPlus9 ink colours and used a simple masking technique to stamp the butterflies & sentiment. I then added a little bit of glitter for that added sparkle and no bulk to create a one layer note card.

A simple & quick design which would be easy to mass produce to create a gift set of note cards in varying colours. That's all from me today, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share, until then, thank you for stopping by today :)

Card Stock: White (Boyes)
Ink: WPlus9 Lake House, Silver Lining & Sweet Nectar
