The first was a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the second an exciting colour challenge from Pals Paper Arts. I really like this colour combination.
I wanted to use my two new stamp sets, Dictionary background stamp and Kinda Eclectic. The Dictionary stamp in Crumb Cake is on the focal panel and also stamped off into the background layer. Because Blackberry Bliss is such a strong colour, I stamped in two generations to get a variation in tone. but used the colour full-strength for the sentiment. This sentiment stamp came in a second hand Stampin' Up set I bought but I don't think it is actually part of the Eastern Blooms set, so I'm not sure where it's from. Although it hasn't photographed so well, the Papillon Potpourri butterfly with slightly raised wings is sitting on a flat Hello Honey butterfly and this gives a nice sense of movement. The strip is a layer of Crumb Cake then Hello Honey and finished with Blackberry Bliss ribbon.
