Let your light shine.

Have you seen the Sketch Challenge on SCS? It's so my type of sketch. Lots of layers and shapes!! So, I designed this card around Rox's sketch today using the lightpost image from the Inkadinkado set Lanterns. I turned the sketch sideways and rock 'n rolled the image with Versafine's Smokey gray and Brilliance Graphite Black, then embossed it with Clear Detail embossing powder (Judikins).

I made the sentiment with Harmony Rectangular stamper and the 25 pt. Times New Roman Complete Font and Lowercase and Trompe Script and Trompe Script Lowercase Fonts from JustRite. The edges are ink distressed with Milled Lavender (Ranger Distress Ink).

Hope you're having a blessed week!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
