It is Sunday Sketch time, Alison Solven from Canada here today.
Each Sunday Patsy Waggoner from the US (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help get your creative juices flowing. I find that when I'm stuck and seem to have lost my stampin' mojo a sketch can give me the spark I need. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today I'm featuring a brand new product coming March 2nd. The Butterfly Brilliance Collection is gorgeous and features the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set, Brilliant Wings Dies, a limited edition Butterfly Bijou 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and the Natural Touch Specialty Paper. You can purchase the stamps and dies in a bundle and you can pick and choose the items you want a la carte.
You can create a card using the sketch exactly as it's presented or switch it up – it's meant to be a starting point for your creativity. My inspiration was the Pantone 2021 Colors of the year.
