Be You - CYCI #128

The challenge this week at Can You Case It is a Sketch Challenge.  I studied this sketch for a few days, and then inspiration hit.  First, I flipped the sketch upside down so I could make the top portion into the Town Scene die from Impression Obsession.  Then I decided to make the star into our closest star - the sun!  As I was laying the card out, I just really preferred the dimensions of putting the town along the longer end of the card.  I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink minis to create the night sky, and then added a ton of stars using the Tim Holtz Distress Splatter Brush (a must have) with some watered down white craft paint.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Avery Elle So Happy stamp set, and some white Doodlebug Star Sprinkles.

I hope you will play along with this great sketch challenge!

Have a good day.
