My last butterfly card for a while, I promise. When I was working in my art journal yesterday I noticed that the Copic markers were bleeding through the back of the paper and thought it looked pretty cool on the reverse side and decided that the next page wasn't really ruined after all. This is the Tim Holtz butterfly stamped and colored on an art journal page and then flipped over, popped up on dimensionals, added florist center decoration for antennae.

I've been playing around with doodling and zentangle patterns lately and wanted to add some of this to my card today. For this I used a Tim Holtz butterfly stamp (Stampin' Up has some beautiful ones too if you want to use one of those). After stamping the images I drew three circles around the image and added x's to the bottom row and o's that were dotted to the top row (for the x's and o's challenge today at Splitcoast).
Embossed Always Artichoke over a Soft Suede card base, burlap ribbon, silver embossed stars with matching die cut to embellish.

Thanks, Dory, for the good advice!

Oh, the airplanes... We should have guessed buying a home a few miles away from Boeing. When we were buying the house we never heard a one, now I can just about go outside and wave to the pilot as he roars by. Couple of times I thought I might have to hit the deck they sounded so low! Anyway, enough of my rant, these smaller planes don't seem to bother us at all when they go by so I thought I'd honor them with a card today :)Supplies used are Stampin' Up! for the color and sketch challenges this week.
Stampin' Up!: Pool Party and Always Artichoke card stocks, Clouds embossing folder, Sky Is The Limit stamp set, Cherry Cobbler ink and black marker for plane, vellum circle for propeller with a silver mini brad, popped this up with adhesive dot. The felt ribbon "road" is SU's retired Alpine Ribbon Originals.

Still practicing with my new watercolors. I did a wash for the sky and when it was dry I stenciled a basic tree form and then filled in some branch detail with the sepia Pitt marker. Dabbed some artichoke ink onto tree limbs and then did another wash in two shades of green and a bit of ocher. Sentiment is SU God's Beauty, watercolor paper and Cherry Cobbler card stock.

This Z fold card was made using a Sizzix die which is a 6 piece set containing the Z-fold, 2 label style frames (shown), and 3 different banner tags. I used Stampin' Up! supplies for everything else except the TimHoltz embossing frame. Birthday Blossoms stamp set was colored in markers, closed card with some baker's twine.

Sketched some dunes, sea, and sky for a challenge on Splitcoast, then used my new Mijello Mission watercolor paints. I am just beginning sketching and watercolor, took a beginner's class at the local Rec Center and stocked up on some books from the library to practice from. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, stamped in caramel ink. Card size is 4 1/4 x 6" watercolor paper.

This is a mix of various supplies that I had on hand, Stampin' Up! items are Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke card stocks, retired Chocolate Chip satin ribbon with rhinestone snowflake embellishment, Versamark and Espresso embossing powder. Designer paper is Night Before Christmas from Graphic 45, green trim is Webster's Pages, sentiment unknown. It feels so good to be stamping again and it's an added bonus to get a jumpstart on holiday cards.
