Just Add Ink - JAI #106 Sketch Challenge

The challenge at Just Add Ink this week is based on the following sketch.


I was inspired by a card made by Therese Calvird, feature in an article on "Designing With Doilies".  The card had a butterfly embossed on vellum, the effect is quite stunning so I had to have a go.  I was a bit nervous using the heat gun on vellum, thinking it would shrivel up, but it worked great.  Love the finished effect, I embossed my sentiment as well to match.
