Happy Monday! First, Mondays mean ABaC at Bugaboo Stamps, so make sure to check out Catch the Bug to see what great projects are up. Second, we all know the goofiness & sarcasm of Stella, Gus and Margaret and the adorableness of the Bugaboo Brats. But I wanted to show that you can do an elegant sympathy card with Bugaboo images as well.
I chose the third of the Flower Tags for my card. The simplicity of this image is perfect for the somberness of a sympathy card. The flowers are colored in with Copics and then I cut it out with a circle Nestie, using the “out of the box” technique featured on last week’s SCS Inkling. The color combo is Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink and Basic Grey Sugared designer paper. I wanted there to be some texture to the layer of designer paper since it was a very low key piece, so I embossed it with Swiss Dots. The ribbon is paper ribbon from K&Company and provides a really nice touch. I finished it off with two Martha Stewart butterflies and a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages.
