Just Add Ink #275....Sketch!

I love Friday, firstly because it signals the weekend is near and secondly l get to share this weeks new Just Add Ink challenge.  This week we have a fun sketch from Kim, I love the simple elements and decided to go with a CAS style.
I used the "Elegant Dots" embossing folder for some understated texture. Like the Boho Chic folder, it's another of those unobtrusive patterns, that l have to say are steadily becoming a fave.
I added some soft watercolour to the negative space using the Perpetual Calendar stamp set in soft Sky.
If you look closely at the first pic, you can see the butterfly is a triple stack, the first being Lost Lagoon, the second it stamped with Soft Sky & Lost Lagoon and Silver glimmer for sparkle on top.

Pop over and be inspired by the design team samples, there are some fab samples using the sketch!
