Card Sketch #63 - Tilted

Hi everyone! Here's card sketch #63 - kind of an off center tilt! Card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Here's my card I made using this sketch. There are several things going on here, lots of fun to do and also adds a chance for a little creativity!

I stamped the main image in Palette Noir ink and then distressed it all over with creamy brown chalk ink from Colorbox with a stipple brush. The edges are torn and distressed further with scissors. I stamped another image and cut out the butterfly, which I colored using prisma color pencils and blending it with OMS. As you can see, it's also popped up with foam tape. I layered this onto a piece of light creamy brown card stock that I tilted at an angle.

The mesh was from a card kit I got at the $1 store at Christmas time and gold in color. I stamped over it with versamark and embossed with copper EP. I wasn't sure how it would come out, but it turned out great! The hardware is stamped with versamark onto chipboard and embossed with the same copper EP. Copper brads hold it in place. Click on the photo to enlarge and see the detail!

Overall, this sketch offers a way to use up some of those strange embellishments that we buy but never use. So, have fun with this one and show me what you make with it!

THe butterfly looks fantastic over the collage and I like the use of the copper too - all the elements look fantastic together.
