Ink'd Wings


There are two great challenges this week at Our Creative Corner and The Paper Players.  The challenge at Our Creative Corner is to make a card based on the inspirational photo...Butterflies!!! Now with a blog titled "Ink'd Wings", my watermark is a butterfly and my creative designs occur in my Butterfly Garden...how could I resist? now all I need was a sketch ...well Paper Players to the rescue, they provided the perfect sketch for my Butterfly card.


The embossing folder was inked with Peach Bellini before I ran it thorough my Big Shot. The sentiment is from a butterfly set by Prickly Pear, the large die cut butterfly is from PTI and the smaller one is C.C. Designs. Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and rhinestones, which were colored with a Copic marker, are from Michaels.


The raised butterfly images were coated with a light layer of Stickles which were smoothed out with a small detail brush.

Here is the delightful sketch from The Paper Players:



The inspirational photo from Our Creative Corner is below:
