Painted Glass Butterfly for JAI #416

Happy Friday and welcome! It's mid Winter and chilly as it should be but we've still been going to dog training with Honey the wonder Foster dog :-) She's now graduated to Level 3 (out of 4) at dog training and we are considering enrolling her in an Agility course as she really would love the combination of exercising body and mind. Hopefully her forever family will come forward soon as it would be a great way of them bonding with her....tho yes, I will miss her of course!

This week at Just Add Ink we have this lovely classical sketch from Patrice to help you get started with your weekend crafting. You can use it as it is or flip it around and even change the square shape to another to suit your project. As always, our lovely and talented design team have all created some fabulous cards to inspire you. So I hope you can take a moment and pop on over and hopefully join us :-)

For my card I changed the square to a circle but otherwise kept pretty close to the sketch.
Using the Painted Glass bundle, the circular  image is stamped onto Balmy Blue card stock and die cut. The White die cut is two of the half circles put together and I've coloured the butterfly using a mix of Blends and where I didn't have the colours I was after, Copics. A strip of Not Quite Navy anchors the ribbon and silver sequin trim.

Card stock: Whisper White (Thick and standard), Balmy Blue, Not Quite Navy
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Not Quite Navy, Balmy Blue
Stamps: Painted Glass
Accessories: Big Shot, Stained Glass Thinlits, Lemon Lime Twist Cotton Ribbon, Silver Sequin Trim, Ombre Sparkly Candy Dots (retired).

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the lovely inspiration our team have created for you and I so look forward to seeing what you will create with this fun, clean and elegant sketch!

Happy stamping until next time,
