You know when you see a sketch and know right away what you want to do?! That is exactly what happened to me for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Narelle always has a knack for layering and this sketch shows why! You can have such fun with how to build you layers!
I knew right away that I wanted to use a butterfly instead of the rectangle (just popped in my head so I went with it) but which butterfly? I realized that I had not used this one from the hostess set Floral Wings and I really think it is so pretty! I stamped it in Pool Party and layered on Calypso Coral flowers with Pear Pizzazz leaves. It is cut out with the Bold Butterflies framelits. Now for the layers. I thought a little banner would be fun on top but that I should maybe to a stamped layer under the butterfly. I pulled the vine image form the set and stamped it across some Thick Whisper White card stock in the same colors. I took a little bit of latitude with the sketch but I like the result. The sentiment is from the same set. Once I had everything ready to assemble, I cut the image panel with my Stitched Rectangles dies.
I hope you have fun with this week’s challenge! The team has all sorts of cool variations to inspire you! I think I’ll get some stamping time over the next couple of days. I’d love to fit in some more coloring for sure! Until next time, thanks for stopping in! See you soon!
