I am playing along with Poppy Sketches again. This is such a fun challenge - I love the sketches and the 'pop' of color! When I saw the sketch this week, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I have this wonderful butterfly die cut from Memory Box, where the die only cuts out the wings and leaves the middle of the butterfly attached! There is another die for the body of the butterfly, which you can add if you want. The wonderful Julie Ebersole introduced me to this great die when I took a live class from her last month!
With some creative masking I used my mini ink blending tool to add yellow to the butterfly and green to the square. The HA sentiment was heat embossed in white. The card turned out almost exactly like what I had pictured in my head - that rarely happens with me!
I am also submitting this to Virginia's View Challenge which is all about die cuts this month. Have you seen her new challenge blog? It is amazing, with wonderful guests and lots of inspiration. I really like the wrap up she does at the end of each challenge. So informative!
Hope you are having a great week!
