STAMPlorations Sketch #7


It's time for a new sketch at STAMPlorations, which runs until 14 March.


The criss-cross lines reminded me of an old-fashioned pinboard, so it was logical that I made a little postcard to pop onto the board.  I masked the edges of a piece of card and sponged Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters, Weathered Wood and Peeled paint, then flicked some water and dried it with a heat gun before stamping the butterflies (Vignette Artful Flutters) and sentiment (Vignette Chevron and Arrows), then I added some touches of colour to the butterflies.

There's a prize for the winning sketch, details below, and if you enter both sketches and the monthly challenge, you're in with a chance of winning another prize.
