Today is the start of the first sketch challenge for the month of September for Our Craft Lounge. They post a challenge every Friday on their blog and at the end of every month they give away one of their amazing stamp sets in a random drawing from the projects submitted. They also have blog hops with each new release. You have a great chance of winning one of their new sets during these hops! Todays sketch was a wonderful one to follow. Go to the site, check it out and get out your stamps!
The cardstock is an off white, the bottom 3rd was embossed with my CB swiss dots folder.
The ribbon and brads are from Michaels.
The DP is from 'Hot off the Press'.
Dazzling Diamonds glitter from SU and Atyou Spica Clear pen for shine
Main image and sentiment were stamped with Memento inks and clear embossed with Ranger fine detail clear embossing powder. The other colors were sponged with Mememto inks.
Everything except the DP and ribbon is up on pop dots.
The images and sentiments are all from OCL
Dandy Days: the flowers
Fairy Dust is a Must: the sentiment
Natures Notes: the butterfly.
These great stamp sets are beautifully used within their sets and many of them easily mix and match to make them quite useful (and thrifty)!
