Digital papers, Sketches and Scraps

I just love sharing so here goes...
 First up, the Unscripted sketch for this week.
 It was so fun giving my card a masculine twist. 
 I used two different digital papers, printed out on white cardstock and the old fashioned car is also a digital element from Times and Seasons by Echo Park. Fun stuff. 
 And, remember my paper tape from Target? I just placed strips of it along the side of a piece of white cardstock.
 I then stamped this Sweet Pea stamp from PaperTrey, Inc along the side. I love stamping it in an outline style.  I also sprayed some Chalkboard spray on it.  Caution, don't stamp over the tape unless you use Stazs On, my ink didn't want to dry on the tape. 
 And, I wanted to also play along with the Moxie Fab Practical Solutions challenge to use scraps. 
I was sitting at my desk and I spotted a piece of paper that I had played with alcohol inks on. I love to play with that stuff and find color combos that look neat. This piece had been set aside.  I was looking at the backside of the paper.  Those inks spread through to the reverse side and it just seemed to be saying that I needed to stamp something on it so I picked up this butterfly stamp by Stampers Anonymous.  I only had to stamp the butterfly with black ink and I had a really cool looking image. The dots are circles punched from a piece of cardstock that I had stamped with yellow ink using a background stamp from the same set. LOVE what neat background paper that stamp makes.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Great cards and I'm still loving those tapes from Target. And you answered my next question which was were you able to stamp on top of the tape.

Thanks

Hi Linda! Thanks for dropping by and leaving such a nice comment. You do a fabulous job on your cards. I love the butterfly card and the story behind the butterfly. You just never know where your next inspiration will come from. Have a great day.

I loved your butterfly card when I came here from Moxie Fab World's Moxie Fabber of the Week post featuring you and your lovely work so had to make one for myself (although I cheated and used a purchased butterfly sticker).
