smARTword challenge!



Every month over at smARTworks there is a challenge word. There are free stamps awarded for a randomly chosen winner, and no limits to number of entries! This month's theme is "bright." You can click on the title of this post to get there!

I had a lot of fun with the stamps I used. For the dotted block, I masked the block then stamped the other. I kept the scrap left over after trimming, as it was big enough to have items punched out of it. :-) I scored the wings of the butterfly, bent them up, then applied tombo multi to the body. I was concerned that the glue, when I placed the b'fly onto the panel, might spread out to the wings, but I wanted to burnish the body well so that it would be secure. So, I placed it on the panel, with the wings still up, and waited just long enough for the glue to be set up enough not to spread, and then weighted the card down for a firm hold.

Hi, Sarah! Haven't made contact with you in awhile and thought I'd peek and see how you are doing. You have some beautiful creations here and it was a blessing to browse your blog once again.
