Blogger's Challenge #147: Sketch Challenge


Our challenge this week was a sketch challenge.  I am using a brand new stamp All a Flutter from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up!  It's a real bargain because you can just buy the individual stamp for only $6.95.  The phrase is also from the Summer Mini from a set called Elements of Style.  Using my Bashful Blue marker and my Color Spritzer, I added just a splash of blue to the butterfly background.  I used my Aquapainter and Pumpkin Pie ink to add color to each butterfly.

After stamping and cutting my butterfly background, I didn't want to cover it up with cardstock as in the sketch.  So I used Vellum Cardstock so the butterflies were still visible.

Be sure to check out what the other players contributed to this sketch challenge this week!  I know you will LOVE them!
