A Stamper's Dream Sketch Challenge



It's Thursday, and it's time for the monthly challenge for Stamper's Dream. This month we were given a sketch to work with. We'd love to have you participate too. Michelle is offering blog candy. All you have to do is make a card with this sketch, and link it in the comment section of Michelle's Stamper's Dream blog to be entered in the drawing. It's as simple as that. If you upload to SCS, please enter the key words: SDDC4.

For this month's challenge, I used this darling image called Playtime by Rachelle Ann Miller. I stamped it with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Neenah Solar White cs, and colored it with my copics. The turtles were stamped and colored twice and are given dimension with dimensional tape.

All the other papers are Prism: Baby Pink Medium, Crabapple Dark, White

The dots are Candy Dots that I got from Taylored Expressions, and I ink distressed the edges with Cranberry Crisp (Stampin' UP!)

The rest is pretty self explanatory.
Now, head on over to the galleries of the rest of the Stamper's Dream DT. They have some fantastic cards to show you!!

Michelle, Charmaine, Cindy, Denise, Kim, and Laurie

Stamps - Playtime (Rachelle Ann Miller - Stampavie)
Paper - Prismatics
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Cranberry Crisp (SU)
