Happy Tuesday! Here's my card for today's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC77). The sketch this week (which you can find HERE) can be fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in between. My lovely butterfly image is from the "priscillastyles" Store.
I used some creative license and turned the sketch on its side. The four panels surrounding the butterfly started out as 4 plain panels of metallic cardstock -- 2 gold and 2 silver. I dry embossed the panels with a Sizzix embossing folder; then rubbed with different shades of metallic rub-on paste and sponged with distressed inks. All 4 panels were heat embossed with clear embossing powder/dazzling diamonds before they were adhered to the card base. The butterfly was colored with Copics, pencils and Spica pens before coating with glitter. The card was finished off with gold metallic stickers and rhinestones. IRL, the colors of the butterfly match the colors in the 4 panels. Don't know why I couldn't get the camera to cooperate... perhaps the shine and sparkle distorted the colors?
