Sketch Something with DRS Designs

Happy Friday All!

I'm so happy that this week is finally over! It's been a long one! We have a new challenge for you over on STAMP SOMETHING and this challenge will run for two weeks. We are taking a break for the holidays, which means you have extra time to play along.

Our challenge this week is a sketch made by our DT member Emily. Thanks to Emily! We also have DRS Designs as our sponsor! They have generously donated stamps for the DT to use on their inspiration projects as well as a free stamp for one lucky winner. To enter, please create a card using the sketch and then upload your creation by commenting on the Stamp Something site by Thursday, January 1st 2009, by 7pm EST. Can you believe it, 2009!

This is the card I created with the sketch and a DRS stamp. The colors are Eggplant, Moss, Plum, and Ivory. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the moss piece, then I sponged ink on the embossing to make it stand out more. The image was stamped, colored, and then distressed with the cracked glass technique. I added ribbon, hodgepodge hardware, paper piercing, and rhinestone brads as my accents.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you'll find some time to sketch something with us this week and next! Have a wonderful holiday season!
