STAMPlorations sketch #17

That's it - the new sketch up at STAMPlorations. Kinda fun, eh? I went literal. Literally.

Tried to keep it masculine. Used a sentiment from VIGNETTE: Celebrate Artsy and stamped it on PP. Love when I remember to do that! Even inked the edges a bit. Cuz I was in an inky mood. See those squares behind the stamped square - they're inked too to achieve the same colors as on my image panel! And that is a stamp from VIGNETTE: It's Your Day which I inked up with three different ink colors before stamping.

Check out the lovely cards from the design team and our guest designer, Kim M., of Art Keeps Me Sane fame. And remember that if you join all three of our challenges this month - two sketch challenges and the monthly challenge which is themed "Stamps and Die Cuts" - you're in the running for a great prize too.

Join us, won't you? The doors are open until August 15. Thanks for stopping by today. It'll be a bit quieter around here for the next few weeks. Vacay calls!
