Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge


Today was another Sketch Challenge Tuesday over at Skipping Stones Design.   Unfortunately, I’ve been battling a cold and was not able to complete my card in time to be included on the SSD blog.   So, better late than never, right?  

The Guest Sketch Designer for this month is Belinda Chang Langer of Bleu Bella Designs.   Here’s her Sketch for this week:


And my card …


This card was just a little out of my comfort zone, which means NO COPICS were used on it!   lol     The stamps are from one of the new releases at Skipping Stones Design, Dandelion Dreams.  

I used the “thumping” method with water based markers.   If you’re looking for a GREAT tutorial on this technique, hop over to Stamp TV and the awesome Gina K will show you how! 

I hope you can check out all the challenge cards over at the Skipping Stones Blog, there are some gorgeous creations for today’s Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for visiting – Back tomorrow with a new All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge.

    I know you feel more at home with Copics, but this is just amazing, you should travel out of that zone more often. Just love that little hummingbird.

  5. This is gorgeous.

  6. Sylvia Johnson says:

    Love this card. How did you do the hummingbird? Or if you bought I sure would like to know what company makes it. TFS and hope you are feeling better.

  7. Wowzers, Mary, this is gorgeous! Your coloring is just beautiful. And that hummingbird……what a fabulous touch. LOVE this!

  8. This card is why I wouldn’t miss a postings of your for nothing. The light inset of this card (with the bird and flowers) makes this card come just spring alive. Wow, what a beautiful card!
