Dirty Sketch Challenge

Dirty Sketch Challenge

While I’m supposed to be working on my convention swaps, I couldn’t resist participating in at least one Dare to Get Dirty challenge on SCS. I picked rainy’s sketch challenge, and used a variety of new and old Stampin’ Up! supplies to create my card.

The images from the Kind & Caring Thoughts hostess set were stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with (retired) Vanilla powder. The words from the Elegant Thank You set were inked up with a Basic Gray marker and stamped on Very Vanilla card stock, then punched out.

I no longer feel like hoarding my Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware — not while the box is such a steal at only $18.99 this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I like how you framed one part of the image with the hardware.

    This looks so beautiful Vera! I thought it was a fabulous sketch too. So much to look at! I really wasn’t sure about this DSP, and yet every time I see something with it, it’s changing my mind!

    I love this card. I am wondering though, what paper you used for the background, I love the black and grey ‘bubbles’
