Deconstructed Sketch No. 55

Hi everyone! I hope you have been having a great week. Time is flying by here. 🙂 We have a brand new sketch this week and with the first Thursday of the month we have a sponsor! Our sponsor this week is The Greeting Farm. They have very generously offered one single rubber stamp to our winner! All you have to do to win is participate this week using the sketch and post your project to a blog or online gallery and link back here to InLinks at the bottom of the post by Wednesday June 13, 2012 at 8 PM CST. I will randomly chose a winner and post the winner with next week’s sketch.

Here’s our sketch this week:

Deconstructed Sketch No. 55

And here is my sample using Miss Anya Rain, Snow Shine from The Greeting Farm. (Please forgive my photos, my DSLR ran out of battery mid-shooting today so I had to use my phone.)

Happy Birthday DS55 coloring detail

To keep all the ink in place a little easier I embossed the image with clear embossing powder before painting. I didn’t use a detail powder but in the future I would recommend using a good grade detail embossing powder so it doesn’t fill in tiny details making them unpaintable.
