Challenge card


Here is the card I did for today's Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge SC220. The little bird stamp is by Stamps Happen. I colored it with one of my most favorite coloring methods. Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol blended with paper stumps. The background paper was made using a technique from the Feb 08 Technique Junkie newsletter called Reinker Splash. I originally made it for a different stamp but it was sitting on the stamp table and went so well with this image that I grabbed it! Even though you can't tell it on the scan, the scalloped round is mounted up on dimensional tape.
