I'm not 100% with the sketch but I'm close. When I saw these two dies in my not-yet-used stash, I thought they would be a unique way to do the squares on the sketch. I lined them up just slightly offset and loved it - then just couldn't bring myself to angle them like the sketch. I think you can still see that I was inspired!!
I wanted something simple in the background so I trimmed the leaves out of the square and added them white-on-white. I had tried a number of other options including embossing folders, stencils with embossing paste, some splattered ink - but they all seemed to take away from the detail of the leaf and the butterfly.
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
