Stampin' Up Beautiful Day Sketch Challenge

Inspire.Create.Challenges #014 | Sketch Challenge

While looking for some inspiration, I stumbled onto this challenge on  Inspire. Create. Stamping Challenges. blog. I love challenges because they help me try new ideas and techniques. As soon as I saw this sketch, I just knew a butterfly would replace the heart. I have been playing around with the Beautiful Day stamp set and love the big butterfly.
I had been experimenting with the Springtime Foils Speciality Designer Paper(DSP)  and had a lot of it on my work table in different colors. This paper is so versatile. You can color the images or brayer ink onto the paper to create a different look But it is only available until March 31, 2018, because it is a free with  $50 purchase item as part of the Sale-A-Bration 2018.I knew I wanted to use the foil paper so I choose to use some of the colors I had tried out. I rolled the ink onto the Springtime Foils with a brayer and then wiped the excess of with a tissue because the ink does not soak into the foil only the paper.

I cut a strip of the paper I had inked with Sweet Sugarplum Classic Stampin' Ink and put it across the top and put the sentiment on top of it.

I embossed the butterfly with copper embossing powder and colored it with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Ink markers and then I fussy cut it.

The raised edge of the embossing makes it very easy to color and the colors really pop out.
I always use glue dots to adhere a butterfly so the wings are free to fly. I put two glue dots on the backside in the middle of the abdomen. 
When I adhere it this way it gives the impression that the butterfly has just landed and is free to fly away.
