CRAFT Challenge #289 Sketch

Good morning!

Our challenge at C.R.A.F.T Challenge this week is this great Sketch:

I did exactly what it says on the tin, and used the Sketch as is.

The beautiful butterfly image is Happiness by Pickled Potpourri who are one of our sponsors this week. I coloured the butterflies with Copics (I'm loving my new Ciaos!) and brushed over some clear Wink of Stella, then used Spellbinders to cut out the image and the pink mat. I added a layer of blue paper from the old Snippets box between the image and the mat to give a bit more interest.

The lace and ribbon are from stash. The doily is cut with a Cheery Lynn French Pastry doily die, and the blue butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart punch from another snippet, and also covered with clear Wink of Stella. they are attached only along the body, and the wings bent upwards.

Finally, the background paper (yet another snippet!) is by Magnolia - I think it was called 'Orchard' but don't quote me! The lovely sentiment came with the image.

Our sponsors are:


Pickled Potpourri

Yours or Mine Papercrafts

And the sponsor for the Top Three is:

Karen's Doodles

What a pretty image Mags. Love how you coloured it.

Do you find that the 'clear' wink of stella isn't actually clear at all but a sort of grey?
