Skipping Stones Designs SSD110

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge #110 and the release of Grunge Two! If you just came from Taylor's blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design. The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.


  • The splatter stamp in the Grunge 2 set reminded me a bit of flowers/greenery so I used it to create a garden background for the butterfly in the Healing Wings set. 

  • Here is a closeup of the background. I inked the stamp up with a few shades of green inks and turned the stamp different directions as I stamped it. 

  • I wrapped the panel with tulle and tied a bow under the butterfly. I stamped additional butterflies on the black cardbase and embossed them with clear embossing powder. 



Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers’ blogs. This month we are welcoming Candice Fields, Emily Leiphart and Julie Day to our team as Guest Designers! Pamela Young will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month including the sketch we're using in today's hop!
Head over to Julie's blog for some more Skipping Stones Design inspiration!
