Whew, what a week. I am so glad it is over. What a better way to start the weekend than with a Sketch for You to Try from Jen. This week the sketch is being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique. I decided to work with Swinging Cynthia. I thought the image was adorable and I just adore butterflies. Everywhere I look lately I find Monarch butterflies as they are migrating back home to Mexico. I simply printed my image on Naturals White card stock and watercolored it in with both an AquaPainter and a Blender Pen.
Here is the sketch from Jen. As you can see I used ribbon for the strips in the sketch. I bought a ribbon sampler when I was a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and a bunch of the ribbon has retired, so I’ve been using it on cards when I have the chance. The base is Marina Mist and is layered with Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette. I embossed the Pink Pirouette layer with a Texturz plate and added paper piercing. The main image is layered with Wild Wasabi. I added a few butterflies that have been lying on my table from the Beautiful Wings embosslit and the Pumpkin Pie corduroy brad. Each of the sparkles have a rhinestone on them for added bling.
I hope you have a chance to play along with us. Please check out the amazingly talented Sketch for You to Try Sisters:
