The Weekend Sketch Challenge is provided by Jenn this week. My sample uses one of the new stamp sets being released by Taylored Expressions today (10am CST) ... Discover Your Wings. I stamped this cool, funky butterfly once onto pink patterned paper and again on olive cardstock; then cut them out and adhered them together to get the two-toned effect.
The butterfly was popped up on foam tape over a panel that I edge punched at the top. For the top horizontal element of the sketch I used pearls that were originally yellow, which I colored with my Copic YG95 marker so they would match the cardstock. I know they don't look too green in the photo above, but trust me -- they are! My camera is just disagreeing with me like a 3-year old this morning, LOL!
And the pearls really are a lovely shade of warm yellow, but my camera is saying they look orangey to him today -- ugh! :D Anyway, I think you can clearly tell there is a difference in color once the pearls have been colored with the Copic marker!
Wide olive grosgrain ribbon was also given a two-toned affect by adhering a strip of pink patterned paper down the middle of it. Love the beautiful fonts on this stamp sentinent! This is just a sneak peek of what's to come at 10am CST today ... I hope you'll check back then to see a complete gift set of cards I made using this new stamp set and a fantastic new kit from Taylored Expressions!
