Inspiration Challenge #567

I love me some Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast Stamper. This week's challenge is to get inspired by Audrie's Pinterest board of her favorites from previous IC entries. I made two cards today based on this challenge and will post the second one tomorrow.

Today's card was inspired by this card by Julia Aston.

My version shrinks the design down (which gives the whole thing more white space) but keeps Julia's delightful sponged strip, black images, and double sentiment. The sponged strip uses Ranger Distress Ink broken china and water splatters (a direct mimic of Julia's inspiration with just a color change).

I love how the butterfly, stamped simply in Hero Arts intense black ink, reminds me of a glass butterfly. Isn't God amazing?

  1. THis is of your prettiest!

  2. Beautiful card Susan, love the layers. Works beautifully. I have never seen a glass butterfly before, what an amazing creature. God truly is so amazing.

  3. Never seen or even heard of a glass butterfly! God is so amazing! Am in need of a sympathy card...I think this design is just perfect! Bless you!

  4. Glass butterfly - wow - I love this card - I sadly have to make a sympathy card and use yours as inspiration .Totally stunning

  5. I'm always impressed with your sponged stripes. I never get an even coverage like you do. This is a fabulous card but that photo of the glass butterfly trumps all!
