It’s Saturday morning and that means it’s time for a new Sketch Saturday challenge.  This week we are being sponsored by the talented Sami Stamps who is offering a generous $12.00 gift certificate to the random winner of the challenge.

Here’s the Sketch:

419

My card today uses a fantastic summer image by Sami called,  “Warm Sand”.  I colored him up with Copic Markers and used Lawn Fawn “Into the Woods” paper pack along with Simon Says Stamp “Happy & Smile”  stamp set to embellish. The square die is My Favorite Things and I made the sand by mixing glossy accents with glitter!

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”.
