Twinkling Tuesday Challenge & Candy!!

Well, it is Tuesday so it must be Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday sketch challenge day!!

Here is the sketch - thank you Madelynn for not making it too difficult this week ;)........ I was sweating last week!! Check out the rest of the sketch teams creations - their links are on my side bar.

We would love for you to play with us this week and there is blog candy this week!

All you have to do is make a card using the sketch and upload it to your favorite gallery with the key word MTTSC3.


Then go back to Jessica's blog "The Whimsical Butterfly" and leave her a comment (be nice - she's the boss) on today's post with a link to your card!

Enough jibbering - on to the card!!

I am combining yesterday's Little Paper Shop Monday with today's sketch challenge - so I chose to use the Make a Wish stamp set from Little Paper Shop.






You will probably recognize Stamping Up's Basic Grey card base. I bought a whole package of this paper so that I could use it in place of black - sometimes black is such a strong colour and since I also wanted to use Basic Grey Ambrosia which has grey in it - well I had to use it - besides, like I said, I have a whole package of it!!



I also pulled out the Cuttlebug butterfly tag team combo - I love it and it has four embossing folders so you can emboss that butterfly in four different designs!!


I used a piece of the Coredinations Reminisce Vintage Collection for my butterfly and embossed it with the swirl pattern. Then I sanded it down a bit to give it more of a distressed look. You can see the core of the paper when you do that - get it?? CORE dinations paper - too cool!!

I wanted the butterfly to sparkle, but I am NOT a fan of loose glitter, so took some Fired brick distress stickles and globbed (technical term) it on and then took my finger and rubbed it all over the butterfly. I felt it was too red so then I used orange stickles and did the same thing.

Being the impatient person that I am, I used my heat gun to dry it.

Like I said --pop on over to the other girls blogs and check out their version of this great sketch and don't be afraid- try it out yourself -you might win some blog candy!

  14. Beautiful. The colours and proportions bring such harmony. Love the idea of using core dinations with the embossing! Much prettier than white core cs in this case.
