Either way you go, everyone has a chance to win! So hurry over to Catch The Bug and link up for your chance to win! While you're there, feast your eyes on the fabulous creations by the DT!

I've chosen a lovely but simple layout today for my project. I used the Repeat Impressions sketch at House That Stamps Built but changed the size proportions of the top and bottom panels a little, to add some variety. Image is Skye Pencil Pics - Rose, by Bugaboo Stamps and colored with Promarkers. The background is created by hand, using a background stamp by Hero Arts, stamped with Versarmark champagne ink and embossed with Sea Foam embossing powder. (I Love the extra texture this powder gives!) Once the panel was embossed, I used Tim Holtz Distress stains and an h2O pen to watercolor the flowers and stems in the background. The tulle and flower border is by Maya Road. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and is punched with circle and scalloped circle punches. Both the image and the sentiment are attached with foam mounting tape, for dimension.
