I think sketch challenges are my favorite type of challenge too. It's just enough of a jumping off point to get me started on a card, but there are no other limits to it.
This is a new stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Mini called Sense of Time. Very easy to use, and great for a masculine card!
I added a Father's Day saying to the inside of this card.
Here's Mary Jo's sketch. You can check out the details and play along on her blog.

I've been seeing this more and more lately, and thought I would try it. What you ask? Layering a textured piece of white cardstock on another piece of white cardstock. Wow! Does it ever make your main image pop! I love it.
Although this stamp set has long since retired, I still really like the images. I'm glad I pulled it out today, as I think it works well with this layout.
The butterflies were stamped on watercolor paper, and then watercolored with re-inkers. If you plan on using lots of color/water, watercolor paper is by far the best option, as it soaks up the moisture without shedding or curling.
Here's the sketch from Splitcoast that I used for this card:

Sketch Challenge 220 (03/18/09) - Splitcoaststampers
And here's my card:
All Supplies Stampin' Up
Set: Simple Friendship
Cardstock: Lavender Lace, black, brocade blue, glossy white
Ink: Lavender lace, lovely lilac, brocade blue, versamark, basic black
I can't remember the name of the technique I used, but here's how it works. Stamp you images on glossy cardstock, and then smear ink all over with sponge daubers. Then, cut the glossy cardstock into strips and flip every other on over, so that the images don't line up with each other. I haven't done this in quite a while.
