Sketch Challenge Day

If you are ever stuck trying to figure out what your card should look like, I really suggest you check out the SCS Sketch Challenges on Wednesday. I really feel like my stamping has come a long way by doing these challenges each week. It is also nice to have all the examples to look through that everyone else did. Here are two cards I made for last weeks sketch challenge #142.

I am planning on doing the ghosting technique with my club next month. The layers are a little tough to scan sometimes, but the card base has been ghosted in Almost Amethyst with snowflakes from the "Merry, Merry" stamp set. "Merry" itself is stamped in Bashful Blue and put on a mat of the same color. The ornament image was stamped and matted in Almost Amethyst. I added a few rhinstone brads to add a little bling.
Stamp sets: Merry, Merry
Paper: Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Versamark
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, White Gel Pen, Circle Ice Brads, 2-way Glue Pen, Dazzaling Diamonds, Dimensionals

I was on a mission to use all of my Christmas stamp sets at least one time last week. Sometimes I seem to reach for the same set a lot and ignore other great sets. I haven't used "Snow Flurries" in a long time. When I do use it, it tends to be for backgrounds and not for the main image. That stops now. This card was simple to make and uses my favorite In Colors.
Stamp Sets: Snow Jumbo Wheel, Snow Flurries
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Purley Pomegranate, River Rock, Whisper White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, White Craft
Accessories: Wild Wasabi Dbl Stitched Ribbon, 3/4" square punch, dimensionals
All of the sketch challenges are archived so you can look through them all. I am off to do this weeks, I hope you try one today.

Very nice cards. I think I could do these. Since I haven't done any Christmas cards yet, I better get a move on!
