welcome back for a new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a sketch for you. To be honest this sketch really did my head in. I really struggled with how to work with this layout. In the end I had to toss my first go and thankfully I was much happier with my second. It was well and truly a challenge! So are you intrigued? Want to see the sketch? Here it is. Just add a border around it, not sure why its dropped out of my graphic.
I found it easiest to deal with by rotating the sketch so the three box elements were at the bottom. Here's the outcome - second time around.
I'm definitely going through a bit of butterfly phase at the momment and this card was no exception! I started by stamping a background pattern of butterflies. Overlaid that with vellum cardstock to mute the pattern, so that the central coloured panel would pop more. To secure it I stitched a border around with my sewing machine. Then I coloured the butterflies in the top panel with ink from the ink pad lids and a blender pen. To add a sentiment I used a double ended banner with the sentiment over the top of the coloured panel. The three box elements of the sketch become butterflies. I reckon my butterfly embosslit is worth its weight in gold! The inside was finished off with a few extra little coloured butterflies.
Thanks for visiting, and do give the sketch a try! And check out the rest of the DT there is some great inspiration on offer.
