Sneaky SFYTT - Beautiful Kindness

Hi Everyone and Happy Tuesday! It's another day of sneak previews over on the Verve Blog, and today the Divas are peeking two new sets. The first one is called Beautiful Kindness and is what I used on today's card. Be sure to hop on over to the Verve Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win the sets being peeked today!

Jen del Muro posted a fabulous Sketch For You To Try layout last Saturday, and there's some cool stuff on her blog you can win for participating this week! I loved the layout, so had to give it a go!




I started by stamping the flourish three times across the top and bottom of the pearlized cardstock in Tangerine Tango. Next I stamped over each one in Versamark and embossed in clear. I inked up just part of the "Spread your wings and fly" sentiment in black and embossed with clear, then did the same for the fly part of the sentiment in Tangerine. The embossing was all so I could do a brayered effect on the background with some Soft Sky and Baja Breeze ink. I finished off by stamping the butterfly in black in the corner, then stamping and embossing it again on Tangerine and popping up over the first stamp for some dimension.

I picked up a new Fiskars border punch this weekend at Archiver's, so I had to test it out on the tangerine and black layers. I fhinished with a little doodling and some faux stitching with a paper piercer and a white gel pen.

What's In It?

Paper: Pearlized White (Paper Accents), Basic Black, Tangerine Tango (SU!)
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Soft Sky (SU!), Onxy Black (Versafine), Versamark
