You are amazing

Hi everyone! The weekend really flew by, but on the bright side it's time for another sketch reveal at Let's Get Sketchy. And here's my page based off the sketch
I'm still on my spending freeze, trying to use up a bunch of my older stash. I found these GCD Studios papers "Sterling" and "Comfy" from the Botanique collection designed by Donna Salazar. I really love the lavender and gray tones in these papers. I used a MS border punch around the background then distressed and finished it with dark lavender ink, using black ink randomly. The masking was done using a Prima stencil and thick gesso, dressing it up with a few scattered pearls. I used cardboard under my layers for added dimension.
The beautiful white butterflies I had got from Renea's etsy
She has gorgeous butterflies in every color as well as other goodies that are just perfect for that finishing touch you need.
I turned the sketch counter clockwise
For more inspiration please head over to Let's Get Sketchy and check out the fabulous projects the other DT members have created based off this sketch.
