Day 166: Artistry Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Artistry Blog Hop. We've got thirty talented consultants sharing fabulous creations using the awesome new Artistry Cricut Cartridge. You may be arriving here from TERRIE'S BLOG. Let's hop!
For this hop I decided to play with the new sketch from Cardabilities. I love the layering on their sketches and I knew I could get the all the images I needed from the new Artistry cartridge. I stamped my background of Glacier cardstock with a sentiment from the August SOTM in Glacier ink. Then I added the circle from Doodled Designs in White Daisy ink. I added a strip of the new Coral shimmer trim, and stamped on some leaves from Lovely Birthday.
Then I started layering on the Artistry cuts. I grabbed some leaves from the swirly wreath banner on page 26, trimming off just the bits I needed. The flowers are the bottom layer of a two step cut from page 11. I colored them using Sorbet and Canary inks and my waterbrush, then formed the leaves as they dried. I gave the butterflies a similar waterbrush treatment. I trimmed the sentiments from the top half of the background on page 42 (which is where the butterflies reside too). I outlined the HAPPY portion in transparent shimmer gel pen for some extra sparkle. 

One project doesn't even begin to show how awesome this new 700 image collection is - lucky you've got 29 more blogs in the hop, eh? Next up is BETH'S BLOG. Have fun with all the Artistry goodness!
