Joy Unleashed for Fresly Made Sketches.....

Hello everyone: This week at Freshly Made Sketches, Jan Mitchell has a great sketch for us to participate in this challenge. I love sketches, they truly help me with the designs of my cards, since this is an area that sometimes stops me in my tracks.
Here is the card I made using this fantastic and versatile sketch.
This is a beautiful stamp from Our Daily Bread and it's called Butterfly Branch and fortunately, it also has a companion die that has this pattern cut into a piece of transparent plastic so you can align the die on top of your stamped image perfectly, I don't think I could have paper snipped this image, no matter how careful I would have been.
I stamped the butterflies on Canson water color paper and colored with my SU markers, I wont list the colors since you can pretty much use any color you want for this image.
The embossing folder I used is from Cuttlebug and I picked it because the swirls look to me like the way butterflies fly.
This is the sketch that inspired this card.
Thank you for visiting, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  2. Maria is this a new stamp for you? I know you've been searching for a butterfly image and this one couldn't be more stunning! What a gorgous cluster of colorful butterflies just made for you to sit and color! It couldn't be more lovely!

    1. Hi Patti: No, I've had this stamp for a long time now but I had kind of forgotten it because it was stored with the die and the envelope was at the bottom of this box, I was so happy when I found it so I used it immediately.
      Thank you, my friend.
