Classroom with Barbara Homework

Hello everyone,

This card is the product of the first "In the Classroom with Barbara Gray" class and 'homework assignment'.

In the Classroom Lesson 1 Assignment
The stamps used are all Clarity Stamps including:

  • Large Butterfly
  • Berry corner & Best Wishes sentiment from the Berry Corner stamp set 
  • Grasses
  • Small birch leaf 
I used the Foliage and Spice Big and Juicy ink pads for all the stamping except the blue, which I did with the  Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  The butterfly is coloured in with Pro Markers.

If I'm honest, getting the pattern to turn out the way I wanted it took a few trials and errors.  Then once I got the pattern right, I ended up ruining another card trying to get the background 'sky' the way I wanted it.  Finally I ended up getting it all right in the card you see above.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Anything Challenge - Inspired by TV / Films  (Inspired by the Butterfly Effect)

I hope you like the card.  As always, I welcome any and all comments - even constructively negative ones :)

Take care and happy crafting
