2 Sketches 4 You - Laura's Sketch #8




This is my entry for Laura's Sketch #8 over at the 2 Sketches 4 You blog this week. I've used my Twinkling H20's to make a shimmering watercoloured background on textured watercolour paper. The butterfly is stamped onto green vellum paper and cut out and adhered by the body only.

The stamps used are from the Inque Boutique - Boutique Grunge set, except for the greeting which is a Stampin' Up one. I've also added Kaiser rhinestones for some bling.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hi Lyn, this is a fabulous card. Firstly the colours make it really happen, but I love the subject matter that you've used too. The butterfly and the rhinestones, great, the flower stamps.
