Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another fabulous sketch from Maren Benedict! We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. Just remember to use the keywords SSD040 if you are uploading to any online galleries.
This is sadly the last sketch from Maren, but we have loved playing with her sketches each week! This last one I really deviated from the sketch, but I think you can still see how I was inspired by it! :)
As you can see I turned the sketch for starters!
In the sketch the butterflies represent the stars and instead of using a base for the butterflies I left that layer out so I could add the little swirl underneath the butterflies. The swirl is from Well Behaved, and is the perfect addition to the swirly butterflies! Both of the gorgeous butterflies from Always Here are embossed in white. For a finishing touch on the sentiment I stamped the smaller butterfly in VersaMark to add just a subtle touch to tie in with the top portion of the card.
Below is a master list of all our blog hop participants in case the chain is ever broken. Once you make it to the last blog be sure to head back to Skipping Stones Design so you can link up your card based on this sketch!
I have TWO Skipping Stones Design sets to give away today, so that means we will have TWO lucky winners! I'm keeping the sets a secret but I know you will LOVE them! Please leave a comment (maybe tell me what set you are burning to have and would love to win!) to be entered for a chance to win a set! I'll be announcing my winners on Friday 9/3!
I now have the pleasure of sending you to Kryssi Ng! Kryssi did the font work on all of the sentiments in Always Here and I'm so glad she is participating with us! I'm sure you'll agree that the fonts she used are simply gorgeous and you'll absolutely love stamping with them!
