The background panel is an emboss resist on gessoed cardstock with the solid distressed butterfly from Butterfly Grace. I then did the background with Magicals Shakers in pink and yellow. A strip of Tim Holtz tissue paper was mod podged on to finish that piece. This background has the diagonal strip going the opposite direction of the sketch, but it was already completely finished and matched pretty close, so I went with it. Sometimes you just have to roll with the things that are put before you, right?
The aqua piece was also done previously with Magicals on gessoed cardstock, then I added texture paste stars with a stencil. I cut the small and large butterfly from Graceful Butterflies Die Set from this same panel, then layered the antennae die cut in black.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderfully creative week. For more inspiration with this sketch, head on over to the Mojo Monday blog to see what the other designers are sharing. And if you like to have measurements, the ones I used to draw up the sketch are below.
