TSOT 465 - Butterfly Dreams

Welcome to this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch challenge! 

This sketch can be interpreted in so many ways... I chose to use the circle for my central image rather than making it an actual circle. 

I began by sponging 6 different colours onto a piece of white cardstock. The butterflies were cut from that paper - although few have mixed colours... such is life. The background papers are from the Blue Skies cardstock pack and I love them as they have embossed patterns on them. I stamped some ink splotches on the white cardstock and then arranged the holder and butterflies flying up toward the right corner. I added some clear shimmer on each butterfly as well. 

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