Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #25

Sunday means Crafts 4 Eternity day & we've got a fab sketch & recipe challenge for you this week. To enter you must
1. follow the sketch
2. use note paper
3. use a butterfly

My gorgeous friend Dena sent me this stunning Sweet Pea image & I have to say I just love it. She was a dream to colour, even though she has lots of hair!! I coloured her with Promarkers to match the Basic Grey - Wisteria DPs.

As I was doing it I realised that my notepaper did not really fit in with the look of the card, so I cheated a little & sneaked it into the layers of the flower. The lighter purple layer is note paper punched out & inked over with chalk ink.

I couldn't let such a magical image go without adding a little glitter! I 3D'd the butterfly & added glitter to it's wings. What doesn't really show in the photo is the little spot of glitter in her eyes to give them extra twinkle!

So, it's your go now. This is a great challenge & my DT colleagues obviously agree. If I say so myself, I think we have excelled ourselves this week. Go check out their amazing work here. This week's prize is one of Michele's fabulous mini card kits. So what are you waiting for?!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Have fun whatever you sre up to!

Thanks for looking,
Big Hugs,

Andie xx
