Freshly Made Sketches #470

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #470!

The talented Jennifer Brum has given us a very classic sketch with tremendous versatility this week. I usually start designing with a sentiment, but this week it was the corners that I tackled first, quickly deciding I wanted to feature a couple layered butterflies dies. 

The Memory Box Drifting Side Butterfly die is my absolute favorite and the Poppystamps Cheviot and Delaney dies pair so prettily with it. I cut the white outline pieces first, used them to help position and blend ink on a white panel and then cut the base pieces.

A search through the large sentiment stamps and dies uncovered a saved ombre inked PTI Big Basics die cut discarded from some long ago project. The color and size were so perfect I had to use it! Once again my cloud stencil helped softened the white panel and ground the sentiment. The only thing left to do was add a trio of tiny Memory Box Mini Butterflies.

I hope you check out the fabulous Clean Team designs and play along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
