I have a really great news to share with you all! I have been selected to work with some awesome ladies from Sketch Saturday on their Design Team. This is an opportunity I was waiting for a very long time. Sketch Saturday is a card sketch challenge that goes live with a new sketch every Saturday and runs for a week.
Today I bring you my 1st card inspiration for their Challenge #393. The sketch is mentioned below
The sponsors for this week are Sami Stamps.
Finally here is my card based on the sketch. The "Butterfly" image is from Sami Stamps.
Here are a few side angle shots to see the dimension.
Here is a close-up shot.
The digital image only shows 2 wings of the butterfly, but I resized the image, pasted it in MS Word 4 times, flipped 2 of the images vertically and then printed them. I kept 2 images as it is and for the other 2 did some fuzzy cutting so that I could create some dimension. I colored all the images in Faber Castell watercolor pencils, pasted the fuzzy cut wings just at the tip where wings attach to the butterfly body and gave the remaining part of wings some shape and dimension . Then die-cut few flower shapes from Spellbinders - Rose Creations (smallest 2 dies, created a flower. Pasted everything on a green panel and then on a yellow larger panel with a ribbon in the middle. Finally stamped the sentiment from Verve Stamps - Floral Notes , adhered the entire panel on a white card base using foam tape and embellished with a few rhinestones.
You can see all the Design Team inspiration and also the Challenge Rules HERE. We hope you will play along for a chance to win the prize from "Sami Stamps!
PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding :-)
