CYCI#116 A Sketch Challenge


Who is up for a sketch challenge? This week at we have this sketch:

Here's my version:

This card uses a great technique called "faux fresco". My Stamp Club hostess this month chose this technique and I had to go look it up!  I found this great YouTube Video by Understand Blue:

I CASE'd her card for stamp club, and then added the butterflies and rhinestones for this sketch challenge.  I used the following Stampin' Up! products:

Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Whisper White Cardstock
April 2016 My Paper Pumpkin All About Everything Stamp Set
Basic Black Archival Ink Pad
Calypso Coral Ink Pad
Extra-Oval Punch
Bitty Butterfly Punch
VersaMark Ink Pad
Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder
Heat Tool 
Aqua Painter
Jewel Rhinestones
Mini Glue Dots

Liquitex Basics Titanium White Acrylic Paint
Colored Pencils

Thanks for joining me this week!  Please head over to and link up your creation.
