The Sketchy Challenges #85 Annette's Sketch & 1.2.3 Theme

Hi Sketchy Crafters
How are we all ?? The weather has been so much better with the sun shining and the fresh spring air it definitely does put a spring in your step !! It's time for a super new Challenge at 

 Here is the lovely sketch by Annette which you can use for inspiration or you can use the theme 1-2-3 or both !! Please check out the blog for all the details and super inspiration from the Design Team !!

The Challenge is sponsored by 

KennyK shop badge

I have used this cute Kitty digital stamp . I printed it onto my Langton watercolour paper and heat dried the image 5 times with my heat gun so that I could colour it with distress inks , Just love the expression on her face lol !! 
 My 1-2-3 is 
1 x Kenny K digital stamp 
2 x Design papers 
3 x types of butterfly 

I have used Spellbinders dies to cut the shape of the card from papermill linen card and used MicheleRdesigns papers on the layers which I edged with studio gesso paint with an angled paint brush .  The butterflies are cut from the papers on the card and around the card I have used Tim Holtz around the edge butterflies. I coloured the white card using distress inks with blending tool and then used Magnolia butterfly stamp and embossed with Ranger fine embossing powder on top . I have cut some holes with my memory keepers tool and pulled some natural twine through for the chevrons and for the bow. The lovely painted charm is from Live & Love Crafts . The flower and bow are cut from vellum with Magnolia peony and bride bow dies and then I used worn lipstick distress ink with blending tool to make them this gorgeous pink/peach colour and finished them with a Hobbycraft button in the center . The beautiful doily die is from Cheery Lyn and is called french pastry doily .

I hope you like my card and are inspired to join us at
