Natures Sketchbook


A bad thunderstorm is moving through our area this morning so I'm staying inside and working on some cards for OWH.  I made this card using a butterfly stamp from the SU set called Natures Sketchbook.  Stamped the image randomly all over a 8.5 X 11 sheet of white cardstock.  Let the ink dry, then cut out a 3.75 X 5 panel for my main image.  Sorry the photo is a bit dark.  The white on white was a challenge to photograph and I had to tone it down a bit as the white was overpowering.  I also scanned in the sheet I stamped and saved as a jpg file so I can use this again in the future without having to stamp a whole sheet again.
 
Challenges:
Sweet Stamps Challenge - Stamp your own background
My Graphico Challenge 148 - Anything goes
Catch The Bug Theme Challenge - It's a bugs life
Bugs = cocoon, caterpillar, butterflies
