Sketchy Thursdays

Is it Monday already??? Where did the weekend go????? sigh
And it has been pouring down rain here since last night to boot :o(
I am hoping for much better tomorrow!!!
How was your weekend? I hope it was fabulous!!!

Today I have a LO made with the wonderful sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays  I so
love their site, but I forget to play along so often! I think it is the Thursdays - so
I have resolved to play and get my sketch up at the beginning of 
the week so I won't miss the deadline!!

OK - I can't remember who made the background paper! I cut the strip off a while
back - I think it was Pink Paisley or Prima - so sorry!  The mat paper and the paper I used for
the die cut is Pink Paisley. I have also used Creative Imaginations and Basic Grey 
chippie letters. The swirlies are grungeboard. The butterfly is cut from a Bo Bunny paper. 

For my background I used some masking, some stamp resist embossing, some 
splattering with inks - love how it turned out!!
The small butterfly was my mask - I colored it with Inka Gold and added
some more color with Viva's Precious Metal  and pearls. 

The color prompt was to use blue and silver - I have used blue on the background and big butterfly and silver Inka Gold on the diecut (it's hard to see but it's there I swear!) and the swirlies.

Here is the fab sketch I used 
If you have never played over at Sketchy Thursdays - it is a lot of fun!
