Freshly Made Sketches 187

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Hey there!  It's Wednesday so that means it's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is Cindy Lovell who has designed a terrific sketch.  It's fresh and fun, just like Cindy's cards, and has got lots of room for interpretation.  If you take a peek at the design team cards you'll see what I mean!



I kept with Cindy's butterfly theme, although mine aren't 3D.  Instead I inked up these layered butterfly images in the colors of the Sunday Stamps challenge (along with some grays and black in the background).  I actually used PTI's Smoky Shadow for the dark layers which in the photo looks nearly black.  But in real life it's this wonderfully dark taupe-like gray.


Be sure and check out the Freshly Made Sketches design team cards for some great inspiration this week.  You won't be disappointed!  And thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Painted Butterflies (Altenew); Blossom (Precious Remembrance)
Paper:  Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow (Papertrey Ink); White (Spectrum Noir)
Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Taken With Teal (SU); Smokey Shadow (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories:  Blueprints 13 die, Stitched Squares STAX (My Favorite Things); Winter Wonderland sequins (Neat & Tangled); washi tape
