Happy Sunday! Sundays mean it's time for another sketch. Please check out the PaperWorks Blog for the sketch and to play along.
One thing I have to say is that I usually don't follow a sketch to a tee. I like to look and think outside the box a little bit. Instead of using 3 ovals I used one ( Oval Nestabilities) and then added some pink dew drops for my other two "ovals." I also turned the sketch on the side. I think that sketches are a great springboard for creativity. I like to add my twist on it usually. I really am a rule follower except when it come to sketches. I'd love to see your take on things.
A few details to my card. The butterflies are by Basic Grey and Peggy has them on sale HERE. I embossed them with brown embossing powder onto vellum card stock. I then used this Taffy Smooch to color in the back. That gives it a stained glass look. Did you know that you can apply Smooch right to your stamp and use it like ink? I just found that out. My sentiment is done that way. I love the look. The paper's are by Bo Bunny's Love Bandit Collection and I used a scrap of green DP to coordinate with it. Please excuse my wonky stitching. Sewing is not my best skill.
So give it a try...See what you can do with this week's sketch.
