Amy's Friday sketch challenge


Wow! It's been a week since I posted. Sorry, needed some breather time. Amy gave us a sketch challenge at the beginning of the week and asked us to post Friday. She also challenged us to use this Beautiful Butterfly set from C.C. Designs. I used so saffron for the base and stamped it in chocolate chip with my linen bg. I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs in chocolate at the bottom then sponged the edges in chocolate. I used my edge distresser on the chocolate piece and used vellum cardstock in my swiss dots folder for the next piece. I sewed around the edges with my sewing machine. The next layer is a piece of designer paper that has the corners rounded and is sewn also. I used perfect pearls and paper piercing on the buckaroo blue layer then sponged the edges with chocolate. The butterfly was stamped with versamark and then clear embossed on very vanilla cs. I masked the butterfly and used my C.C. Designs polka dot bg to get the chocolate polka dots. The butterfly was glitzed up using perfect pearls and stickles. My prima flower was jazzed as well by using my white gel pen and a large eyelet from SU. I added a rhinestone brad to the center to finish it. I hope you like it! Have a super Friday and enjoy the possibilities!
