Today, we have a new Sketch Challenge at Sketch Saturday and it's Jen's birthday too!
Happy Birthday Jen!
Jen designs the majority of the sketches for the blog, so this week's challenge is to use your favorite of Jen's sketches #216 - 263. You can see a lot of the sketches HERE - note that Jen's sketches are unlabeled.
The sponsor this week is Loves Rubber Stamps and prize is a $10 store voucher.
I chose Sketch #255:
The image I used today is a Nina B stamp, Chalkboard Birthday, available at The Craft's Meow. I had to get it because I've been seeing this chalkboard technique everywhere!
First, I used Palette New Canvas ink and a sponge to create the used chalkboard look and heat set it. Then, I stamped the Birthday sentiment with VersaMark ink added white embossing powder and heat embossed. I ran the New Canvas ink pad along the edge of the image.
