Bloggers Challenge 139: Sketch

 
This week our list Mom gave us a sketch to work with.  This is one of those sketches I think I will go back to over and over again.  It was a nice clean sketch that I had fun creating a card for.
I've been using my embossing powders more this year that I ever have before.  I have so many more supplies that have not seen the light of day in over a year...do you have supplies like that?  I need to start using more of them and more frequently.  


 

I know that I used this same technique a few weeks ago for one of the other challenges, but I can't seem to steer myself away from it!  I embossed my image with clear embossing powder and used a sponge dauber to color over my image.  I distressed my whole card and I really need to buy the new Zutter Distrezz-it-all.  I used this at CHA and fell in love with it.  I think I need this tool!


 

Make sure to check out the blogger's challenge gals creations this week.  I always love to see how different they all look from one another.

Have a great weekend, I hope to get lots of stamping done!
