Starving Artistamps is sponsoring 2S4Y this Week!

I play along with the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge whenever I can because I just love a good sketch challenge. Whenever Starving Artistamps is sponsoring, I make sure to get a card know...being on the SA design team and all, lol. The 2S4Y design team always has some amazing cards for inspiration so be sure to check them out. And, here's mine to (I hope) add a bit more inspiration. And if you need a bit more incentive, the stamps I used are part of the awesome prize you could win!

Star of Light
Stamps:  Starving Artistamps - The Nativity
Specialty Papers: Strathmore cold press watercolor
Inks: Versamark; Fluid Chalk Blue Iris
Other Supplies: White Embossing Powder, Inktense Pencils, Copic marker, scalloped border punch, ribbon, Nestabilities die, Cuttlebug, Waterbrush
Special Techniques:  Watercoloring - Stamp image with Versamark onto watercolor paper. Wet an area of the image with water until it is quite wet.  Use the brush to pick up color from the tip of an Inktense pencil, and the lightly touch the tip of the brush into the wet area.  The color should start to spread immediately.  If the color doesn't spread, rewet the area with more water.  Continue wetting and adding color.


It's so nice to hear from you...thanks for taking the time to comment!
