TMS #168: Hoppy Holiday

Hi Friends! Time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge!

Our sketch this week is one of Laura's, and it's great because it works no matter which way you turn it, and the front panel is big enough for an image and a sentiment! Stamping Scrapping is our generous sponsor this week.
I can feel the days slipping away, and decided to make another Christmas card. Don't know if I'll have enough made in time this year, but I'll give it my best shot. The speckled panel was made with my new Dylusions Ink Sprays. If you haven't tried those yet, you should. They are so much fun. I spritzed the colors onto dry, white cs, but you can get an entirely different look if you wet the cs first. 

I picked this adorable stamp set up at the Greenville convention. I colored the frog with Copics, used a Snow Marker on the pompom on his hat, used black Enamel Accents on his eyes, topped that with white Enamel Accents, then covered his eyes with Glossy Accents. I made the light colored dots on his body with my Copic colorless blender. The glittery dots on his hat are from a Martha Steward glitter marker.

For more inky inspiration, head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and see what the rest of the DT has to share with you, then link up your creation for a chance to win a Stamping Scrapping prize!

And, while you're at it, don't forget there's still time to enter the Pink Birthday Challenge--the only requirement is "Pink and Birthday!" Easy Peasy!!! And, Melissa is keeping the contents of the birthday prize candy under wraps, but I hear that it includes a Scor-Pal!!!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fab week!
