Core'dinations Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone! Today I am bringing you a card I made for a Core'dinations Sketch Challenge. I love Core and the possibilities of what you can do with it are endless. Here is the card I created...

I am calling it Flutterby

I love love love butterflies, especially on cards and in scrapbooking. I also just recently got a Sizzix Texture Boutique (THANKS HUBBY) and fell in love with it. I used the texture boutique to get the dots on the card and on the butterflies, and I used Linen paper for the card. I love the texture that the linen paper gives my cards, so thats what I usually use. The Core'dintions paper is from the Tim Holtz Ranger collection (I believe). Ill double check and update that if needed. I embossed the scroll pattern and used my Core sanding block to get the look and feel of the card the way I wanted. The sentiment was made by me in my Cameo and written with my sketch pens. I colored the butterflies in with the sketch pens as well. I love that I was able to find colors that matched the card perfectly. Here is a close-up of the technique and the butterflies.

I absolutely loved loved loved working on this card and the sketch was amazing!! I will definitely use it again in more cards and look forward to a lot more uses of Core in my work. I hope you enjoyed the card and hope you all have a blessed day!! Always - Jameka :)
