Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge...

Good morning and welcome back for another Skipping Stones Design sketch challenge! 


Supplies used: Skipping Stones Designs Healing Wings, Sentiment Frames, Grunge, the Twinery

idea to note: To create the butterfly, stamp the image from Healing Wings on aqua cardstock twice. After cutting both out,  trim some of the inside veining on the butterfly to create a delicate lacy design. I didn't cut every line on the stamped image, but used it more as a reference. Now flip the butterflies over and use the uninked side. Coat the lacy butterfly silhouette with adhesive and sprinkle on some glitter. Glue the butterflies together and lift the wings. Add a bit of twine behind the butterfly for antenna. A few pearls and you have a beautiful butterfly embellishment. 

If you'd like to play along, be sure to link up your project at the Skipping Stones Design blog to be in the running for a prize!
