RI Sketch Challenge and Sneak Peek!


Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another Repeat Impressions sketch challenge.  For this week's sketch, I used a few images from some soon-to-be-released Christmas/Winter themed stamps from Repeat Impressions.  Aren't these little penguins adorable?  They are a lot of fun to play with!  For this card I stamped the penguins using Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  I used Spica markers to give their hats, beaks, feet and the stars some sparkle and then I added some Martha Stewart chunky glitter to the 'fur' parts of the hats and ear muffs.

Here is the sketch - we'd love for you to play along and make a project based on the sketch.  To play along, you will need to upload a photo of your project on today's post on the Repeat Impressions blog for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.  While you are there, please check out what the rest of the design team has made using this sketch!

Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for Repeat Impressions' first Blog Hop!  We will all be showcasing stamps from this fun new penguin set!  And there will be a prize for those who play along with the hop!

Thanks for stopping by!
