I am participating in a sketch challenge. Above is my offering. I admit once I saw the paper (which was provide to those who are doing this challenge) I knew exactly which stamps I wanted to use. I would only change the solid green panel and use a soft yellow saffron one on top. I used the saffron paper provided for the inside panel.
The stamps are from Stamping up as well as the card stock. I used Marvy markers and direct to rubber technique to stamp the images. The center focal image is enhanced by some vanilla hodge Podge hard wear. I used a sponge and certainly celery ink to soften up the starch vanilla piece. All in all I am pleased with the results.
Blog candy until October 31. Currently there are two stamp sets, and an altered item in the pot. Stamp Happy my friends!

After successfully completing one altered clip board, I opted to do another. I purchased some 'white board' from an online store and half of this one is a dry erase board with a calendar, dry erase pen and shrink plastic push pins. I also used a junior legal pad so you can make a list and take it with!
These are not difficult, I think I spent more time waiting for the base color to dry than it took to alter the entire board. The back of the piece is finished off with white paint.
The card is a Penny Black image and inside the card it reads "what if the hokey pokey is what it is all about". Cute!

As promiced, blog candy starts today and ends on Halloween. October 31, 2009 for those who do not observe this festive time.
Stay tuned for previews of the boo-bukets I am making for neighbors. Click here for a link for more details.
*** Last year I started with four large and five small boo-bukets. We have sixty six homes in our community and by the time Halloween rolled by, we had 3/4 of the homes with signs on the windows. It was so much fun.**** ***
This year I am focusing more on treat than sweet. With diabetes I am keeping these buckets on the low sugar side. **
