CIC #10 Sketch Challenge



Good morning everyone and welcome to the Clearly Inspired Challenge on Lori McCroskey's blog..... today the challenge is a sketch challenge....use Clear Dollar Stamps if you have them, if not, please play anyway....we would love to see your designs!!! A random winner will be chosen the following Thursday. Upload your cards to Mr. Linky on Lori's blog and if you upload to Splitcoast, use CIC10 in the keywords.

Three of the images from Clear Dollar Stamps Bitty Botanicals were stamped on the Webster's Pages dp and cutout with a Blossom Nestie. A Martha Stewart Punch was used for the butterflies. The wide lace was attached over the Prism Wizard Medium cardstock that was run through the Cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder and then distessed with my handy dandy kitchen knife. The sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps Birthday Celebration was also stamped directly onto the dp and piercing was done around the next layer. Distressing along all the background edges finishes it off.

Recipe:
Stamps: Bitty Botanicals and Birthday Celebration both from Clear Dollar Stamps
Paper: Prism Wizard Medium, Pure Lucery Chocolate Brown, Webster's Pages
Ink: Memento Ricxh Cocoa
Accessories: Lace, Blossom Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Dotten Swiss Folder, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch,
