Let's Scrap 7-16-14

Here's my take on Let's Scrap sketch 7-16-14. This week is for a card sketch. And yup, I made a card out of the sketch instead of a layout. This background was done during mass misting, as in background of some 6 cards and 5 of white 12x12 were misted. Also didn't waste much of the ink and I did use the negative for some inking without much planning actually. Eventually I did get some pretty colorful fingers! Some happy misting session for 1/2 hour. Do come and join us at Let's Scrap and play along!

Let's Scrap DT Challenge #189

Busy month at Let's Scrap. July, thankfully it's the end of a quarter at work, it's one of the few months in a year when I could sign up for more stuff on crafting!  Today is my turn to host a challenge at Let's Scrap!
1. Use a Let's Scrap sketch, cannot be combined with all other challenges and no backdating is allowed
2. Your layout must contain must have at least 1 photo; up to 3 photos
3. Start your layout on a white/cream/very light colored cardstock
4. Must have A LOT of flowers and butterflies, min 3 each (stamp, punch, die cuts, embellishments, stencils, DIY ones, etc...)
5. Make it a colorful layout and you must have at least these 3 bright colors on your layout : Orange, Yellow and Green

I started with a white cardstock, did some stencil misting and left the negative space from the butterflies and stuck them elsewhere on the page. I translated the sketch as flipped with less prominent lines tonnes of misting/stenciling all over I added the fussy cut photo with some washi tapes. 

Do check out Let's Scrap and find other DT inspirations for this challenge. Come play along and have fun!
