Layers of Color Celebrates One Year!

Happy Birthday Layers of Color!

Today I have a card to share that I made using my Layers of Color art stamps and a fun celebration sketch! Layers of Color is celebrating their first year as an art stamp company!

And to celebrate this big event, our DT member Patter is hosting a challenge all week long on her challenge site, Triple the Sketch and LOC will be offering up some great gifts for participants in the challenge. Laura, the owner of LOC, will be drawing the winners and giving away 3 fantastic prizes. These prizes will include a $50 LOC gift certificate, a prize of 3 acrylic blocks in various sizes, and lastly a prize of 3 Tsukineko Brilliance tear drop ink pads! How fabulous is that and all you have to do for a chance to win, is play along with the challenge and make a card, tag, or scrap book page using Sketch 65 over at Triple the Sketch.

This is my take on the sketch...

I started with some SU! Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze cardstock that I thought matched perfectly with this polka dot patterned paper from BasicGrey's Two Scoops! I then used my Polka Dot Parade and Polka Dot Love stamp sets to keep with the polka dot theme. You can find both of these stamp sets and many more in the Layers of Color Boutique, HERE.

The images have been either stamped with Baja ink or colored with Copic markers. The edges of the papers have been distressed with a distressing tool, but you can use the blade of your scissors to create the same effect. I used the SU! eyelet punch to create the border and added Prima flowers for embellishments.

Thanks for popping on over today. Take a jump over to the Layers of Color shop too see all of their fabulous stamps and hop on over to Triple the Sketch to join us in the One Year Anniversary Celebration!

Happy stamping! :)
