I hope your week has been wonderful and full of summer fun! We are still finishing up some school things with one of my sons so it doesn’t quite feel like summer yet…but soon! Just a few more days! And that anticipation was definitely on my mind as I worked on this card for today. Our hostess, the wonderful Jennifer Brum, has created a wonderful sketch for us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.
I started with this pretty little butterfly from Mama Elephant and did a quick coloring with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. I love butterflies and I’m finally started to see some around here. Always makes me happy! I created a watercolor background using a couple of yellow Distress Inks and the “smoosh” technique (apply the ink to acetate, spritz and ink the paper). I this the two tones of yellow add a nice contrast. This gorgeous sentiment comes from Studio Katia and it was an extra treat in our supplies that came for last week’s collaboration hop with Newton’s Nook Designs and Studio Katia. LOVE this scripty font, don’t you?! I thought a couple of the Clear Round Drops from Studio Katia to finish. Quick and easy and perfect for summer (and it let me get back outside on a beautiful day)!
I hope you have fun with this sketch. You can use designer paper, background stamps or keep it simple like it did. Tons of ways to use this one! The DT has shown you that, as always. Love those gals! I hope your week has time for some crafty fun. Until next time, thanks for stopping in!
