The challenge at Innovative Stamp Creations Blog this past week was to make a card using this sketch here. I have to say I did not like it at all - It took me to the darkside (using preprinted papers) but without it I wouldn't have this card, which I do like in real life.

and guess what technique I used for the butterfly...
Yep - you guessed it - more resist.

Stamps used: ISC "about me"
inks used:versamark and distress faded jeans, black soot and shabby shutters
techniques used: pre-printed papers from 7gypsies, prismacolor pencils, powder embossing resist.

It was so nice to use some different colours.


  1. Oh Melanie, this is just gorgeous! You did a fab job with the sketch, (even if you had to visit the dark side with preprinted papers!)

  2. Oh wow! I'm happy to see your blog!

  3. Hi Melanie.. I just LOVE this card! Glad to have found your blog, and looking forward to seeing more of your great art work!
