For today's sketch challenge. As an SU Demo, and with our New Catty officially starting on Tuesday next week, I'm trying to get as many "demoable" cards ready for upcoming workshops. So, I'm using all the sets I have that are carrying over to the new Catty - thank Goodness Scribble This is coming out in the new Catty - phew!!!!! The only non SU item on this card is the glitter (and I only decided to add that at the last minute to try and jazz it up a bit!!!!!)
Anyway, the layers are all fairly straightforward - I have coloured the main image using inkpads and blender pen, masked the flowers and then sponged a background to give it some depth. Had I been thinking straight when I started this card, I would have done the background first (it's been a bad week!!!!). Of course, the main image is also using the Out of the Box technique which I'd not done before. Very funky that technique - but I'll have to practice it more before I get it right I think!!!!
Anyhow, the second layer is just some DP and the final layer and base card are both stamped using my favourite swirly stamp from Scribble This. I also coloured the two butterflies and cut them out, put them on dimensionals and mounted them.
That's when I decided to add some glitz - clear glitter glue to all the "dots" on the butterflies and flowers and then randomly on some of the "dots" on the final layer and base card.
Overall, I'm pleased with the end result - would love to know what you think.
