Send a Smile 4 Kids – Anything Goes Challenge!

Happy Saturday!  Today Send a Smile 4 Kids begins a new Anything Goes Challenge!  We have some great prizes from our generous sponsors for our randomly chosen winner.  The design team will also be choosing their favorites and those cards will be featured on the Send a Smile 4 Kids blog.  You have until Friday, June 17th to enter

Our sponsors are:

1)  Sami Stamps:  $12.00 Gift Certificate to the Sami Store

2)  Dies R Us:  $15.00 Gift Certificate to the Dies R Us Store

Now, how about a little inspiration to get you going?

My first card uses Sami Stamps, “Slippery Umbrella,” which I colored in Copics.  I used a really cool technique with distress inks that you can find in my previous post here.  I also created the background using an eye dropper filled with 91% alcohol after coloring with some gray copics to get that drippy/raining effect. The dies are from My Favorite Things and my sentiment is Newton’s Nook “beautiful wings”.

I sure hope you will join us at Send a Smile 4 Kids this challenge for a chance to win some great prizes in our Anything Goes Challenge!

Sketch Saturday Challenge #415

Happy Saturday!  Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by A Day For Daisies who is offering a very generous $12.00 gift certificate to her store for our random winner. Thanks Tammy! You have until Friday, June 10th for a chance to win.

Here’s the sketch:


For my card I chose the sweet image from A Day For Daisies called, Curious Daughter.”  I colored the image with Copic Markers  and used Echo Park’s “Sunshine” 6 x 6 paper pack.

The sun, tag, and vertical strip are My Favorite Things Dies.  The clouds are Memory Box and the oval scallop is Spellbinders. Finally, the sentiment is Wplus9.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!
