CBCC #29 - Inspired by Nature
This week's CBCC challenge is to let yourself be inspired by nature. Courtney challenged all of us to use this beautiful butterfly on our "nature" projects. You can find this butterfly as a digital image over at Sweet N Sassy Stamps. The great thing about digital images is that you can simply pay for them at the website, download them, open them up in your own software, resize them if you prefer, and print directly on your own cardstock as many times as you want. No waiting for stamps to arrive in the mail, no inky fingers, no dirty stamps to clean up! Gotta love that!
I loved this butterfly so much, I had to try it in all kinds of different colors. I used the same layout, but I changed the color of my butterfly depending on what colors were in the background designer papers. The butterflies were colored with Copic markers. This was so much fun.
The sentiment for all of these cards is a stamp I bought at Stamp Salado, made by Joyce A. Meyer at www.jamnstamps.com. (BTW - I just tried this website, and it appears to be out of business.) I love sweet little sentiments like this. I can just write a little note to a good friend and pop it in the mail. Mailing these cards is exactly what I had in mind when I created them, thus the lack of bulky embellishments. I wanted something nice and flat so they won't get ripped open in the US Postal mail service. :-)
