Less is More with Thread

Less is More ---Does black space count as white space?  I tried to evaluate whether my card is CAS according to the examples on the page, but I'm still not certain.  However, I'm posting my "thread" card, anyway.   I rather like it.   (It's a tall card that will require a special envelope.)


The thread is copper, marking the flight of the coppery butterfly.  Copper is repeated in the heat-embossed sentiment.  



Sketch for Sunday Stamps

It's a sketch for the current Sunday Stamps challenge.


I didn't stray far at all; I even chose a beautiful butterfly!

Freshly Made in Monochrome


This week's Freshly Made Sketches reminded me of a classroom chalkboard at first.  It's because I'm a retired teacher!   The design led to more designer paper for me...this time from Penny Black's "Beau Jardin" paper pad.  There are many bright colors and florals, but I chose the gray and white for a mono look. "Imagine" is a Memory Box Die, and the flower is from Prima's "Madrigal Blossom Nocturne."

Mojo Monday





Kraft and black with distressed edges came to mind when I started Mojo Monday's latest sketch. When I finished, I wasn't nearly as happy with the result as the idea, but that happens, doesn't it?

Freshly Made with Black and White Ribbons

It's hard to beat black and white ... for anything!  For the current Freshly Made Sketch, I was inspired by Jennifer Timko's navy and white creation.  (I've had the sentiment stamp for quite awhile, but this is the first use of it.----Lizzie Anne...gourmetrubberstamps.com)

Mojo Monday 465



An old SU! sentiment is the focal point of this Mojo Monday sketch.  The silk flower tops the stem of the flower accenting the sentiment.  It's another fun sketch!
