Freshly Made Sketches 161

No long weekends or school holidays this week, so it's been a real effort to get anything made but I did get something done for this lovely design at Freshly Made Sketches.

It hasn't photographed so well, but the butterflies wings are raised more the higher they climb and each is based on an Early Espresso "shadow" butterfly. They were 'painted' using ink pads and cotton buds in Pool Party/ So Saffron and Pool Party/Marina Mist

Update: So happy for this card to be picked as a Perfect Princess at Freshly Made Sketches.

Stamps: SU Eastern Blooms, Papillon Potpourri, Hardwood Background and Hero Arts Thank You stamp
