It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our Canadian friend, Jen Brum, who has an aversion/fear of circles has a new sketch for us. And guess what is all over her sketch!? Nothing like facing your fear head on, I guess.
Maybe it’s the taste of Spring-like weather we’ve had this week or maybe it’s just because I love butterflies, but I saw butterflies when I looked at this sketch (after several minutes). And since I just got the new Butterfly Gala bundle, I knew just what to do with it.
I started by applying a wash of Balmy Blue ink on a piece of watercolor paper. I then punched out some of the butterflies from two different sheets of the Botanical Butterfly dsp, which is a Sale-a-Bration offering. One of the sheets (the one with the larger butterflies) has uncolored butterflies, so I colored them with markers.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch. We’d love to see what you make with all of those circles. I think it will be a fun gallery this week! Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
