Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge No. 15 ~ It’s a Sneak Peep!


Welcome!   Time for a new Sketch Challenge at Skipping Stones Design.   I’m VERY excited about the challenges this month since we are soooo lucky to have my very dear friend – the super talented and amazing JAMI BOVA as our Guest Sketch Designer !!!     And, she definitely did not disappoint!    Here’s this week’s awesome Sketch . . .


For my card, you will getting a sneak “PEEP” at a fun new stamp set from Skipping Stones, scheduled to be released mid-March.   It’s called Chick Chat


Here’s my card!


This little peep was colored with Copics and then I used Marianne Walker’s  “nasty rag” technique to give her a little dimension.  The grass was added with colored pencils and gamsol.    The dp used is from Cosmo Cricket – Garden Variety.   

For some reason, I decided to dust off the old sewing machine for this one – unfortunately, I still can’t sew very straight!   I even attempted to stitch around the scalloped oval – which was then covered by my image!   lol    I tried. 

The flower was made using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Blossom dies and edged with a Colorbox Lipstick Red ink pad.   I also used the new Nellie Snellen floral punch – Stamen  for the center of the flower – thought it matched the dp  pretty darn well!    🙂



So hop over the Skipping Stones blog to take a PEEP at all the lovely creations for this challenge, by the awesome Skipping Stones Stamp Tramps!  

Thanks for stopping by today.
