Everything Eleanor for TSOT225

Today, I’m sharing my design team creation for TSOT225.  Sketches are always a fun challenge for me as they are opposite of my usual creative process.  Most of the time, I start by reaching for a stamp set that strikes my fancy and then I figure out what I’m going to do with it.  But with a sketch, I have to figure out how to fill in the details.  It’s good to change things up!

For the sketch, I chose to work with Everything Eleanor.

The flourish inked in Tip Top Taupe, and stamped several times, was perfect for filling the focal area.  I was careful to line up the flourish that bleeds over onto the Blushing Bride so that it appears to just continue across the card.  Everybody needs a stamp set with a good flourish and Everything Eleanor fits the bill.

The sentiment, also in Tip Top Taupe, is a mash up of words from Crazy About You.  I have the set in photopolymer which makes it extremely easy to match/line up words to make phrases.

The butterfly started with layer of Gold Foil cut with the Bold Butterfly framelits.  It was layered with a piece of Neutrals designer paper cut with Butterflies Thinlits and finished with a string of the smallest Basic Pearls.  The shiny Gold Foil peaking through the filigree makes this butterfly the perfect accent for this simple card.
