Butterfly and Sunflowers for #68

Hi Guys,
Now that I am working full time and my daughter and I are busy doing Uni visits at the moment, my visits here are getting less and less, however, I still like to know that you have come to visit my blog and see my Art 4U. This week is another image from our great Sponsor Eureka Stamps. the image I have used here is called Butterfly and Sunflower however as you can see I didn't go with the traditional Sunflower colour!

I coloured the image in with my trust ProMarkers.....I was missing them a bit, hadn't pulled them out in a while! All the papers are from Stampin' Up! although a retired set from a few years back. I can't quite remember the name of it but it was a page layout kit the included a couple of sheets of embellishments.

I have given the butterfly a bit of a 3D effect by cutting it out and sculpting the wings a little with my sculpting tool. If you don't have a special tool it is really easy to do by simply rubbing the back surface with a rounded object onto a mouse pad or similar soft surface. I find paint or makeup brushes often work well.

I hope you like my card and decide to come and play with us at Feeling Sketchy. Here is this weeks sketch:

Also go and check out the Stamps at Eureka never know you might be our monthly winner!

Happy creating until next time ....

Oops....I am so sorry guys. I completely missed uploading this weeks Feeling Sketchy card Blog. I have been crazy busy and it slipped my mind but here it is a little late.

 Image and prizes for this month sponsored by 

This one was done using the sponsors image Hummer and Gladioli which I have coloured using watercolour pencils and a blender pen, then fussy cut around. A liitle different for me but I have lost my mojo and can't seem to find it. So please if you haven't done so, go check out the wonderful cards from the other DT members and play along in the challenge.
