You've Got This Card

Hello! This evening I made another card using purple for The Hop to Stop. I really admire Becca Cruger for organizing the hop to help spread awareness about Domestic Violence. Make sure to check out her blog for all the details (click here).

To create this You've Got This Card I've used the You've Got This stamp set by Stampin' Up! and colored the flower with Copic markers. After the flower was colored it was fussy-cut and adhered directly to the background. The background was stamped using Smokey Slate ink and the sentiment was added using Memento Black ink. I was inspired to add a little yellow butterfly because these delicate creatures have been flying all around my backyard flowers for the last week. To add a little sparkle I added three rhinestones to the butterfly and that's it.

This card is entered into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

    1. Thanks Sue! After cutting the flower out, I went around the outside with a black marker to give it a crisper edge.

    1. Yes, the slate stamping directly behind the flower is part of the same set. The splatter spots stamped to both sides are part of the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
