Butterfly Sketch

So I have been playing around with some of the sketches provided in the clean and simple card making class.

Kristina made a card using this sketch which was completely adorable. Jennifer also mentioned you can still use technique in CAS cards you just have to be a little more selective. I combined the sketch with Jennifer's advice and this is what I got

I masked off the inside and stamped my background (Hero Arts, Large Fabric Design) with versa mark then white heat embossed. I put the mask back in place to color with worn lipstick, scattered straw, and shabby shutters. I drew a line with my marker to make a clear boundary. It looks more layered to me this way.

I stamped the butterfly (Hero Arts, Antique Engravings) three times on the base of the card and also on scrap paper. I fussy cut the scrap paper ones and colored them each with one the distress ink colors then coated them with stardust stickles. I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, Live & Laugh) and the popped up the butterflies on foam to complete.

I think it's still a clean a simple card with just a little technique :) Thanks for stopping by to look and I'll be back with another card using different sketch.
