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.
