EBTKS Sketch Challenge!

I'm excited to announce some big changes with the Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge! First, we have a brand new blog where our challenges will now be hosted!

Second, in addition to our inspiration challenges on the 30th of each month, we will host a sketch challenge on the 15th of the month. The cool twist is that each sketch is based off an item from around the house!


Courtney is the hostess for our inaugural
sketch, and she chose this photo from her home as the inspiration.






Isn't it cool to see how she translated the picture into a sketch?





When I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to play with this stamp. I've had it for a while but never had a chance to use it until now. I chose patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket and added random rhinestones for sparkle.











I also used rhinestones and a glitter pen to jazz up my mittens.

So, ready to play along? Head over
to the EBTKS blog to see what the rest of the team created, then link up your creation. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Stamps: Polar Express Mittens (Imaginisce)
Paper: Cameo Coral, Garden Green, PTI white, Cosmo Cricket dp

Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Copic markers, Spica glitter pen, Kaisercraft rhinestones, dimensionals
