AH 334 - Friendly Butterfly

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch #334!

I tried a number of different things with this sketch before settling on my final card. Small flowers, rolled flowers, Cricut cut flowers of various types... all of which turned out ok but not end products that particularly pleased me. They all seemed too busy. That's when I decided to take a completely different approach to this sketch and use an existing floral frame and work in some other elements. 

One of the new stamp and thin cut combinations from Close To My Heart is the Every Little Thing - Cardmaking set. It has this gorgeous frame with various sentiments that fit inside. I didn't want to use one of the included sentiments so I went to the September Stamp of the Month (Random Act of Cardness) and chose part of one sentiment and another and combined the two of them. It fit inside the frame perfectly. 

I cut the inside of the frame separately and mounted that on foam tape. The background paper I chose is from Kaisercraft's Greenhouse collection. I coloured the floral parts with appropriate Touch markers and then did the same with the vellum butterfly. The butterfly is mounted on cardstock so it shows up better. I also brushed the flowers and butterfly with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
