RetroSketches | Challenge #87

** This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down or click here to view my release week card for Fresh Squeezed Stamps. **

This week's RetroSketches challenge is a very basic (but easily customizable!) sketch. I have a pack of aqua shimmer paper that I've been dying to use, and I paired it with a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. 

I colored the butterfly with a trio of Copic markers, then placed the die cut upside down in my 5 inch Xyron machine to apply adhesive to the top of the butterfly. I dumped on some glitter from Stampin' Up! to finish it off. It is very sparkly in real life! And I hate using liquid glue with glitter (more mess), and using the Xyron cuts down on the glitter explosion that usually happens on my desk when making a card like this. I thread a button and used a medium sized glue dot to adhere it on top of the glittered butterfly.

 (Supplies - Stamps: (Hero Arts) Antique Flowers and Butterflies. (CAS-ual Fridays) Beanstalks. (Papertrey Ink) Background Basics: Twinkle. Ink (Memento) Black (PTI) Aqua Mist. Cardstock: (PTI) Aqua Mist, Rust White, Shimmer Aqua. Enamel Dots: My Mind's Eye. Glitter: Stampin' Up!. Button: (PTI) Aqua Mist.)

That's it for me today! Check back tomorrow for another new release card for Fresh Squeezed Stamps. Thanks for stopping by!
