RI Sketch Challenge - Thanks So Much Scrimshaw

There is a new sketch challenge starting over at The House That Samps Built!  For my sample card, I used Sailboat (2704-H), which I stamped on ivory paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink and sponged using Distress Ink (Antique Linen) to make it resemble scrimshaw.  The patterned papers are from October Afternoon's Seaside collection.  The sentiment is Thanks so Much (8607-D) from Quartet Complements and I used some string to tie a square knot, in keeping with the nautical theme!

Please head on over to The House That Stamps Built to get the rules for playing along with the challenge and to see the wonderful cards the rest of the team has made using the sketch!

This is my last posting for the Repeat Impressions design team.  I have some big projects going on at work and have decided that it's best if I take a break from design team assignments for a while.  I hope you'll continue to visit! 

Thanks for stopping by!
