Clearly Inspired Challenge #2




Good morning everyone!! Today is the second Clearly Inspired Challenge on Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp.


Today we have a sketch challenge for you!

1. The Clearly Inspired Challenge is open to any stamps - if you have Clear Dollar Stamps, why not use them!!
2. This will be a bimonthly challenge - every other Friday but the challenge itself will only be open for 1 week.
3. This is because the winner (randon draw) and a TOP FIVE will be posted the following Friday after the challenge and will just stay up until the following Friday when the next challenge is up.
4. The challenges will vary every single time from sketches, colors, themes, products, etc.
5. There will be a prize (random draw) of a stamp set of choice to one indivividual.
6. If you upload to Splitcoast use CIC2 in the keywords so we can find you cards.


The sentiment cake image from the Clear Dollar Stamps Birthday Celebration set was stamped with Ruby Red onto white cardstock and tiny gems were attached to the dots on the image. The Make a Wish sentiment from the same set was stamped with Bravo Burgundy and both images were layered on Rose Red and Bravo Burgundy. I tried to pick out the colors in the beautiful Basic Grey Indian Summer dp. The rhinestone flourish, Spellbinders scallop, and ribbon finish it off.

Recipe:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Birthday Celebration
Paper: Ruby Red, Rose Red, White, Bravo Burgundy, Basic Grey's Indian Summer
