Simply Sketched

One of the Penny Black Design team members Jenyfur, is a whizz when it comes to creating sketches, this week she has created this sketch for creating a simple card.

I found a pre-printed card blank and added three lines of Gelato; softening and blending the edges with my fingers. "Blue Wings" 2422J was then stamped and embossed with black embossing powder, Gelatos were smeared over the butterfly and then blended with the fingers, it was then cut out and adhered to the card with dimensional glue. 

If you have time, pop on over to Penny Black to see some fabulous creations from our new designer kelley, here.  

I am going to have surgery on my shoulder tomorrow and don't know how long it will be before I am back making cards, in the mean time I will try and post some cards that I have made in the past on my blog. Thanks for all your well wishes and for visiting today, Hugs Cathy x

Hope that eveyrthing goes well with the surgery & that it resolves your problems & that you'll be back crafting again soon. Love the way you've interpreted the sketch & the colours of that butterfly.
