Saturday Sketch Challenge 142

Use your scraps... That's the theme of this week's stamping 411 challenge in my mind.. After creating a bunch of cards for my embossing class that was held tonight, I took one of my leftover packets and had some fun with this one..

So, it's a little bright, and I did do quite a bit to it, but I just used my scraps, embossed all my layers, I used watercolor crayons and blender pens to color it all in, and assembled it based on the sketch... Nothing fancy, just a lot of fun.

If you have a few extra minutes and would like to play along, you can check it out here along with my girlfriends who made their own fantastic cards, and a scrapbook page using this sketch! So fun!

very nice! I love your floating reinker techniue. I tried a few samples yesterday; however I don't think that mine turned out a beautiful as yours. Maybe I am trying too hard; or maybe I'm using too much ink or too much water / not enough water. Sure wish I lived close enough to take a class. Thank you for sharing your techniques.
You mentioned in an earlier posting that you taught a technique class. Would an online tech class work?? If so would you ever consider it??
