A New Sketch Challenge & Blog Candy

Gooooooooooooooood Monday Morning!  I have a new sketch challenge today, and will be offering a RAK to one lucky cardster.  Details to follow.  😉

First, I wanted to share a couple of super-simple cards that I made for a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers – Sketch #165.

I used up some old pp that I had been pulling out, and putting away for at least a year!  I thought a couple of generic cards would be nice to have around.  I can add a sentiment later.

Now, my sketch:

AND, my take (x2):

Don’t you just LOVE that stamp?  It’s a Penny Black.  I stamped it with Ranger Distress Ink (which is embossable!  Did you know that?), and embossed with black super-fine embossing powder.  Then, I coloured the images with my (brand new) Prismacolor art markers!  They are a more affordable version of the Copic markers.  The cardstock is Bazzill, all pp is Stampin’ Up, and the ribbon is Maya Road.  The flower is Bazzill, and the buttons are $ store.  The sentiments are hand written (with the Prisma markers).

So….now the good part!  I will be offering up some card kits with the above stamped (and embossed) image, and some yummy pp, along with some super-cute embellies, AND an art marker for you to try!  Okay, so it’s not Copic, but I’m not RICH!  lol

I am also offering a RAK over at Lil Scrappers (see link over here——>).  The challenge is to use some of Tim Holtz’ techniques on his blog, and create some tags.  The link to his blog is under my Blogroll over here ———->

Here’s my tags:

A hint about the RAK:

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!  Be sure to link your creations to this blog, if you want a chance at winning my Blog Candy!  🙂  Have a great day, everyone!
