Beyond my comfort zone

This is the Easter Blessing themed sketch at Scrapbook Place Challenge Blog.

This sketch is more than I like to work with.While I might work with this many pieces, they aren't usually spread out.  So this was a real challenge for me.

The background is a new technique for me using paint and liquid inks. It was for a technique swap at SSSD. Easy enough and messy but fun to do and no two papers are alike, I did four 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.

The little butterfly is SU and was punched from another piece of the background paper that I made.
The image is a From the Heart digital stamp. I really like working with digital stamps. The flowers in the upper right are from the same digi. The sentiment is a clear stamp from Stamps of Life. The band across the bottom is a sheer ribbon.
There you have it, my contribution to the Easter Blessing sketch at Scrapbook Place challenge blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Take Care

Joyce, great job. I wouldn't even try a sketch like that. I'd be way too intimidated. Wonderful card.
