Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps: Ornamental Kitty

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Hi Friends! Can you believe it's already mid-November? The days really start to run together this time of year. But, being the 15th, it's time for the November Prickley Pear Sketch Challenge! Be sure to read all the way to the end for our NEW challenge rules! :D

Isn't the November sketch fantastic! It's so full of possibilities!

Here's my take on it:
I just love that sweet Ornamental Kitty's face. I colored her with grays and tans, although it's difficult to see in the photo. For the eyes, I used white Liquid Pearls for the highlight and covered both eyes with Glossy Accents. The ornament is paper pieced and I used Stickles to highlight the design. The purple and pink ornaments hanging over Kitty's head are cut from silver duct tape that was adhered to cardstock. I colored both of them with alcohol inks, including the design on top of the pink banner, but decided to cover the round one with Stickles for extra sparkle. The bg is embossed with a Regal Flourishes embossing folder. I swiped Perfect Medium over the raised edges, then brushed Perfect pearls over that for a subtle shimmer.

Now for those NEW CHALLENGE RULES. I think you'll like them! :)

**While we love to see you use your PPRS products, that is no longer a requirement. There are NO product restrictions--the challenge is open to everyone!

**The prize is a $15 gift certificate to the PPRS web shop! You can use it for Clear Stamps, dies, and best of all Red Rubber Stamps! Anything in the PPRS shop! And, let me tell you, if you haven't use a Prickley Pear red rubber stamp before, you are in for a super treat!

So, all you have to do is make a card based on this month’s sketch, and link it up using the linking tool on the PPRS blog, no later than November 30. Easy peasy.

One winner will be chosen by for a $15 gift certificate to the Prickley Pear web shop!

Now, head on over to the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp blog and be inspired by the rest of the design team's creations. Then, create your own interpretation of this sketch and play along for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate!
