Corrosive Challenges #7 - sketchtime

This week on the Corrosive Challenges blog, Janet has created a great sketch to use. I got out my Hero Arts clear stamps and tried some of the treatments that were suggested to get them taking up ink. So they've had an eraser rubbed over them, Stazon cleaner, Versamark ink and then washed. I've not yet tried sandpaper, I'm worried about losing the impression.

It then stamped ok using Stazon, which stamped well as I expected, however the stamp stuck to the paper and I had problems lifting it without tearing the paper :). Hmm....

I coloured in the flowers with Inktense pencils, cut the oval and the framing oval with Nestabilities and added Crate Paper dp from the Stamp Attic. I don't know where the "Thank You" stamp came from, I think I bought it in a job lot on Ebay. Centres of the flowers are highlighted with amethyst coloured gems.

Don't forget to join in this week's Corrosive Challenge to be in with a chance to win some fab prizes :)
