Retro Sketches #178


DSC_0003 copyHey stamping friends! Well I made the big move…I’ve got a good portion of my stamping stuff back to my upstairs craft room. This weekend I’ll take a trip to IKEA and get more shelving to complete the move and I can’t wait! It is so nice to be up here with the family, amidst the action of the house and free from the spiders of the basement ewwwww. The only thing that is going to take some getting used to is sitting at a desk to color & craft. I’ve always stood at the counters Jeff built for me, but when I proposed the big move his only request was that I NOT ask him to move the counters (again – this will be the third stamp room I’ve had).

So here’s my first card from my new space. I popped over to the Retro Sketches blog to see what the DT has been up to and decided to take a stab at this week’s sketch:rs178


I was inspired by THIS amazing post by Kathy at The Daily Marker. I can’t get over the amazing coloring on everything she does. I so admire her work. I receive her post updates by email and let me tell you that is dangerous! Step 1: open email. Step 2: order whatever Kathy is using today. Yikes let’s not tell Jeff about that one! So, of course I ordered THIS gorgeous butterfly set from Clearly Besotted stamps.

Here’s a side view of my butterfly:DSC_0010


I colored the butterflies in Copics (of course): RV00, V01, V04, V06, V09 and I added a little FRV1 to my main butterfly to make it more pink than the others for a little extra pop. The embossed background is from Stampin’ Up!.

Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂
