card patterns sketch#16
I am totally on a roll!! I have not EVER in the history of MY cardmaking ever finished two sketches in one day!! Totally unheard of but I didn't do any thing for almost two weeks when I was sick so I must be in "catching up" mojo. I used the butterfly image from unity stamp co.'s april kit of the month. This was my first kit and I must say I love it!! Very impressed... I stamped the image with soft sage memories die ink, it totally matched the sage color in my wisteria paper from basic grey. I stamped the thinking of you strip from papertrey ink's "around and about sentiments" in the same sage ink on the top and bottom of the middle layer. I colored my flower trim with my copic marker "prune" bv02 to try and match with the purple in the paper. I distressed all the edges with my heidi swapp edge distress tool before I adheared it all together. I found the sage flower button in my aqua mist assortment from papertrey ink and added to the trim. I went over the butterflies with a clear spica pen to give it a little shimmer, it's hard to tell in the picture but is pretty in real life.
It's still early maybe I can get another project done today!!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
