Splitcoast Challenge Today!

I'm home from Cabo with a nice golden tan, and starting to get back into the swing of things. In fact, I'm hostessing today's challenge for the Holiday Extravaganza 2008 at Splitcoast Stampers. You can see it here. Everyone's welcome to play along, so I'd love to see you stop in. This is the card I made for mysample.

The challenge is altered embellishments, so I stamped on my brad with noir Palette ink. Heat set. And colored with Copic markers. I used a dabbing motion since it was such a small area and I was worried about smearing. I also painted my primas with Shimmerz.

This totally lovable stamp is from the Pat the Dog set by Our Craft Lounge. I just love their darling artwork (Have you SEEN the latest release!?!) and that they offer clear AND unmounted rubber options. This was so fun to color. And easy too since the stamps come on a full color sample storage (cheat) sheet.

What's In It?
Stamps- Pat the Dog (Our Craft Lounge)
Paper- white, close to cocoa, cutie pie (SU!); water color (Strathmore cold press)
Ink- blacks (Palette and Versafine)
Markers- bashful blue, celery, olive, close to cocoa, chocolate, caramel, pretty in pink, pixie pink, pink passion (SU!); R43, YG63 (Copic); black liner (Zig Millennium)
Accessories- water brush, nesties, circle punch, primas, Shimmerz, Lasting Impressions brads, making memories jumbo brad, white opal Liquid Pearls
