Spring is just around the corner and what better way to look forward to it than with this gorgeous set of stamps from Stampendous. This week we have the Sketch Challenge for February with quite a different layout this time. As you will see I have stamped the butterfly twice and embossed with clear powder. This gives a nice raised outline for watercolouring with the Sakura pens. I have used the pens direct to the stamped image where I want the colours to be bright and concentrated and used the watercolour technique over the large area of the wings. A little soft sponging around the edges of the panel and random stamping complete the design.I have layered this onto the bright side of  piece of the Victorian Beauty paper from Magenta. I have then used the 2 Magenta papers to form the required panels for the sketch. The card is finished with some punched daisies and a "Happy Spring!" 

Here is the original Sketch
