Sketch Saturday and a Spoiler

Hi all,

Well, I am playing along with another fun layout over on the Sketch Saturday blog - #137.  For some reason, I usually really like the sketches over there!  Here's a glimpse:

Before I show you my card, I need to let something slip - I got a Christmas card from our Fearless Leader Kristy this season, which I loved, but that wasn't the best part! Inside the card, was a little present for me...

Kristy sent me a sample of what one of her images would be like in acrylic!!!  I am sooooo stoked about this - I do like my digital images, but I will always be partial to the physical stamp.  If I can get my mitts on some more of these images, I will be a happy camper!  I think everyone should email Kristy and try to convince her to make a bunch of stamps! LOL

Anyway, here is my card for this week, using my BRAND NEW Love Letter Kaylee stamp!  BTW, if you love this image, you can buy her in digi form HERE.

My card base is Always Artichoke CS, and my DSP pieces are from SU's Manchester pack, with Whisper White mats.  The photo corner is done using a punch with Whisper White and Basic Black CS.  I added some iconz rhinestones to that, as well as 3 rhinestones to the top of the large DSP panel.

Kaylee was stamped onto Neenah Solar White CS with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copics.  I also added some shading with my Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  That layer was matted onto a Basic Black piece and popped up on foam circles.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
