Hello, Today’s card was inspired by the fun Sketch going on over at CAS(E) this Sketch. Not only did the sketch intrigue me, but DT member Michele Ferguson’s card really got me excited to play along. It is fabulous and got my wheels a crackin’. I have had these “new to me” butterflies from SU on my desk for quite some time and I am glad I found a reason to use them. I started off using 3 colors of Oxide inks, some water, and a paintbrush along with a SU-striped stencil to make my rays of color. I did quite a few layers and I love the way it turned out. Next, I did the smooshing technique for the butterflies. Finally, I fussy cut the butterflies out and all was going smoothly until it was time for the sentiment. UGH! It looks terrible! I guess I rocked the block a bit. I was going to start over or cover it with a tag and then remembered my word “Acceptance” (New Year’s Resolution) and refrained. Folks, it wasn’t easy!
I am so glad you stopped by today! Happy creating, Nanc’
