It's time for another Artful INKables challenge!

It's that time again...come and join the INK girls for their sketch challenge hosted by none other than the fabulous Jennifer Muraoka! The challenge is very easy, just break out your Artful INKable stamps (or if you don't have any, any other kind will do just fine :) and follow along with this sketch.

When you upload your card to Splitcoast Stampers, please don't forget to add ARTINK (all in capitals) to your keywords, that way we won't miss out on any of your fabulous creations! Feel free to link your card in the comments section to my blog or the Artful INKable's Company Blog.

Please stop by the INK girls blogs to say hello and check out their wonderful creations!

I must have been on a roll last night! I decided to participate in the Wednesday Sketch challenge over at Splitcoast. I used the newly release Give Thanks Set by Our Daily Bread Designs to make this beautiful Thanksgiving card! I just love Kelley's images because they are so full of detail :) I watercoloured the imaged with re-inkers and markers and then covered the conucopia with glass micro beads to add some texture.

I just love the look of micro beads because they remind me of the coarse sugar topping on Christmas Holiday treats - mmmm....sugar! lol
