Lovely Lotus



It's a Saturday and I'm off work...that's a big YAY! The biggest down side of my job as a nurse is having to work every other weekend. I really treasure those when I'm off! This card had a rough beginning! I had to give the first go around the ax, but after a redo of the flower and the butterfly, it was acceptable - lol! This is for 2 different challenges:
Our Creative Corner - cut it out.
Inkspirations - sketch.
The stamp set was a bargain find at TJ Maxx as I was in the checkout line...an acrylic stamp set by K&Co for only $2.00! I colored the lotus with Copics (RV00, RV02, YG03, YG06, YG93), cut it out and popped it with dimensionals. Diamond Stickles were added to the center. The butterfly is a sticker by K&Co. I'm going to check out what's happening in Daytona next...should be interesting to see the new changes in Nascar this year.
STAMPS: Lotus Floral Stamps
PAPER: Gossamer DP by Memory Box, Neenah Solar White
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa
ACCESSORIES: Ribbon (Flourishes), Button, Baker's twine, Crochet trim, Diamond Stickles, Copic sketch markers, Oval Nesties

Lovely Wanda, great paper and embellishment combo! That stamp set was a bargain, I searched for this set for 2 years when I originally bought it... I use it often, sure you will too!

Looks like it all came together beautifully the second time, Wanda! I had to chuckle because I had the same experience last week! Your flower is gorgeous and I love the various DPs you used - great color palette. Terrific job on the "Cut it Out" challenge! So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
