Saturday Sketch Challenge 139

Sunday afternoon was filled with lots of fun stamping, the sun was shining and the weather fair, but what does one do when your yard has at least 4-6 feet of snow in it?  STAMP!  To get my creative juices flowing I usually start out with a sketch & color combo and go from there. 


Here is the Saturday Sketch 139 Challenge


Here is what I created for the Saturday Sketch Challenge 139.

Shadow Dancing Technique


Here is a fun technique for you to try called Shadow Dancing or 3-D Stamping. 

First stamp the image with Craft Whisper White, then using your stamp-a-ma-gig re-stamp with the same color as your card stock just a little up and off to the side to get the shadow effect.  Very easy technique and fun to try. 

I used the Sketch from this weeks Split Coast Challenge SC268 and a Technique Challenge SCTC4 from Stampin' Connection (a place for Stampin' Up! demonstrators to share with each other). 

Hope you enjoy.  I am sorry that last week I wasn't able to post very much, was recovering from a severe Kidney Infection.  On the mend now...and hoping to get back on track.
