RI WIW S1714 Sketch Challenge

I love sketches and sketch challenges!  Whew, it felt good to say that :)
Sketches give me a jumping off point and sometimes that is just the push I need.

Today I am sharing a card I created for the Repeat Impressions WIW Sketch Challenge on The House That Stamps Built blog.


I can't believe that I have started making Halloween cards already.  I usually don't do too many Halloween cards, but when I saw this stamp I immediately thought "self portrait", I am sure that is what my family would say sometimes :)

I started with the RI Spooktacular #2309-G sentiment and instead of stamping it as it was designed I stamped the words on three lines instead.  To do this, you can just mask over portions of your stamps, ink what you need (remember to remove the mask) and stamp.  Repeat this for each word or words that you want to use.

Next, I stamped my self portrait by using the RI Halloween Witch #817-I in black ink and coloring her with markers.  I used scraps of paper (yeah!) to create each of the layers.

Check out this awesome sketch created by Wendy (owner of Repeat Impressions)


Would you like a chance to win some free stamps?  We would love for you to play along with this sketch challenge.  Did you know that as much as we would love for you to use Repeat Impression stamps, it is not necessary that you do in order to win.  This just may be your chance to score some Repeat Impressions stamps of your own!

You can find all of the details on The House That Stamps Built blog.
