Beautiful Kindness

I've been working on my next MFT Idol project but I needed a break, so I inked up another of my new Verve sets to use on SCS Sketch Challenge #220.

My base card is Very Vanilla with a layer of Basic Black. The next elements are Groovy Guava (retired SU! In Color) and DP from the Porcelain 6 x 6 pad from Basic Grey, following the sketch. The focal image--and sentiment--are from Verve's Beautiful Kindness set and are stamped on Very Vanilla with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After using the Ticket Corner punch on the Very Vanilla layer, it was matted with Groovy Guava and Basic Black and popped up on 3M foam squares. The small butterfly from the set was stamped the same way twice and colored with Copic marker R02--Flesh. One was cut/embossed with a circle Nestabilities die and matted with Basic Black and is also up on foam squares. The other butterfly was cut out, had it's wings bent in a little for definition, and was popped up on bits of a foam square. Three faceted black jewels accent the sentiment element and it's done!

Thanks for dropping by!
