Technostamper's Sketch Challenge#27

I love this week's Technostamper Sketch Challenge! Such an easy sketch to work with... I used a piece of Distress Dragging Background (February 2007 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter) for my base. I stamped butterflies and the "you're amazing" phrase over the dragging, then colored the butterflies with colored pencils and highlighted them with white. I love the "you're amazing" phrase -- who wouldn't love to receive that? All of the stamps on the cards are from Innovative Stamp Creations.

I actually "cheated" a little when making this card. The Distress Dragging uses Adirondack's Pigment Inks -- I used them for the first time while demonstrating in the ISC booth in Hartford, and I have a new love! I own hundreds of ink pads, and these are, by far, the best inks I have ever used. I just ordered a mess of them from ISC -- I can't wait to play some more! I will do an ink comparison on my blog to show what I mean when they come in.

As an aside, I want to thank all of you who stopped by the Innovative Stamp Creations booth in Hartford while I was demonstrating. It was great to meet so many of you -- I had a blast! I can't wait to do it again soon.

I hope you have an amazing week!
