OCC Sketch Challenge

Today's OCC Challenge is a sketch, brought to you by...well...me! I hope you like it! :)

Stop by the OCC blog to see the sketch, the beautiful samples from the rest of the OCC girls, AND to see what the amazingly talented Jami Bova (sgtstamper) has created. She's our special guest designer this week and her sample blew my socks off. Check it out! Thanks so much for being our guest this week, Jami!! :)

Today I thought I'd use some of my new Crafty Secrets stamps and cotton scraps. This is the first time I've used the cotton scraps and they're really cool!! The main image is part of their Romance Cotton Scraps sheet. The black and white photo has a pink tint to it that's really cool. I love it! It's very sweet.

The heart from the Large Cherish set was stamped in Versamark onto SU Basic Gray CS and then heat embossed with pink embossing powder. I cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I layered some pink striped organdy ribbon from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts in front of some black grosgrain ribbon. The pink swarovski crystals were glued down with a small dot of Crystal Effects.

The inside of the card uses more stamps from the Large Cherish set. I love these little accent stamps...so pretty!

hi Denise - love your makes too x....
Try the colouring technique with stamping up pens - whispers are water based just like the SU ones .But pick the more vibrant colours in them to use. so you would use .. prismas pencils first , then the su pens. Hope that helps and let me know .
love maddy .
