Sadness Flies away...

Hi everyone! I had fun playing along with this weeks sketch at Skipping Stones Designs. In fact I loved the simplicity of the design that I tweaked it a bit and made two cards. Using the medium sized butterfly in the Healing Wings set, I stamped it on a post-it to create a mask. Next I laid the mask down on the cardfront and inked it with Distress Inks. I used a combination of  Broken China, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed to ink the butterflies. While the mask was still in place I inked up some background stamps (Timeless Treasures and Rustic Tiles) and stamped the design. 

Here is the sketch from Kim Kesti. You can see I stretched the card out to make it a long card. 

And here is another version of the card where instead of three design elements I used two. I loved the idea of the butterfly wings overlapping in flight!
