SDC29: Sketch
- Using Stampotique Stamps Only

It sure has been a crazy busy couple of weeks so it's nice to finally sit and catch up with you :)  This week brings us another Stampotique Designer's Challenge with Kim Howard as our hostess.  Any of you that follow her blog know what a love she has for sketches. She uses them frequently.

This challenge is a Stampotique only stamps week, so we encourage you to break out your Stampotique stamps and join our creative design team for your chance to add to your stamp collection with a prize of $30 gift certificate for stamps at Stampotique!

Here's the quick little card I created using our hostess' versatile sketch.  I love the distressed sentiment and I tried my hand at sketching a little border around Minkygirl; even though it's uneven, I think it works with the offset letters in the sentiment as well as the quirky Minky.  The itsy bitsy pearls were created on a non-stick sheet with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen and later transferred to the corners as accents - I love making a bunch of unique-sized pearls to have on hand!
All stamps by Stampotique Originals:

  1. Beautiful card! I love the combination of colours

  2. What a fabulous take on the sketch, Val!

  3. I love your sketch around minkygirl, it looks awesome-mine never look like that.

  4. I love the sketching around the edge of Minkygirl, it's a great effect. Also loving the look of those large sketchy letters :-)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! Your kind words are so inspiring...
