Hi and welcome to Freshly Made Sketch Challenge Day! This week, the Queen of Fussy-Cutting and my fellow antipodean, Narelle Farrugia is our host and she has come up with this wonderful sketch for us.
On my card, I wanted to make the layer behind the circle the focus and that was totally because I'd just received a new embossing folder and had to use it! I saw this embossing folder used on the card of a recent Princess at FMS, Sonja, and immediately went searching for it online. It arrived yesterday and so became the focal point of my card.
I also bought some linen cardstock at the local stationery store the other day and thought that would add some nice texture. I inked up one side of the embossing folder with Memento Tuxedo Black and then run the linen card and folder through the Big Shot.
The butterfly was colored with Copics, then painted with Wink of Stella and some Glossy Accents on the body. The "hello" was clear embossed to give it some extra body.
Thanks for looking. You really need to check out the awesome gorgeousness of the rest of the design team's samples!
