Cherish


I just love Wednesday's as it's Sketch Challenge day over at SCS. I saw so many possibilities with this weeks sketch - even had different stamps picked out and rotated the sketch, but alas I picked out some of my more neglected images - Baroque Motifs and Dreams Du Jour and paired them up with some Bella Rose DSP.


Because I was going for a vintage look on my card, I wanted to add a bit of vintage to the butterflies, but not over do it, so I used the Ink Wash Technique. It gave them just the right amount of color without being too heavy. To add some lift to my butterflies and give them more of a flying look, I placed dimensionals under both wings and pushed down slightly in the center when adhering to my panel pieces.

Speaking of challenges - be sure to come back tomorrow to check out the ISC Challenge for this month - I can't wait to share mine with you!


Details:
Stamps - Dreams Du Jour, Baroque Moftifs (all SU)
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Chocolate Chip, Pink, Bella Rose DSP
Other - Dimensionals, Aquapainter, Sponge Dauber
Finished Size - 5-1/2" x 4-1/4"

Well, I started a comment, but it very suddenly disappeared, so I'll write again.

Lovely card, Lisa. Love how it all fits together, and the dimensional butterflies, looking like they've found some nice nectar.
