Graphicat Designs June Sketch

It's time for another fabulous sketch from Graphicat Designs this month... and we've got exciting news, too... Cheri has decided to start a brand new Sketch Challenge blog to host these challenges on! You can check it out HERE- and be sure to bookmark it or start following so you can play along with the fun!

I've used the June sketch together with some of Cheri's fabulous sushi images and it all came together for me once I decided to make my card with the gorgeous Gabrielle papers from BoBunny!
Apart from my image (coloured with Copics, of course!) & papers, I used Spellbinders Nestabilities & an EK punch along with some funky brass flowers & a photo corner from my stash, ribbon, twine and paper butterflies from Prima, which I blinged up in a big way :) First, I smeared some Distress Stickles on the wings (orange- I didn't check which one!) then I sprayed them with Perfect Pearls Mist- both copper & red! It added a lot of shimmery colour, which is fun! Here's some close up shots of my blingy butterflies:
and you can see the touch of glossy accents on my soy sauce in this photo, as well:
Hop on over to the new Sketch Blog and check out what the rest of the Crafty Catz have created- I'm sure you'll find inspiration there and will play along with us!

(In case you missed it- we're featuring another one of Cheri's sketches on our Creative Accents Challenge blog this month as well and we'd love to have you play along with us there!)
