Thankful Thursday Challenge




In Style Stamps has a sketch challenge every Thursday and DT member Melissa has a great one to try this week. My Thankful Thursday challenge card uses Jasmine.   There is nothing that quite beats the thankfulness a family has then when a new little bundle of joy arrives!

Jasmine is just so trendy and put together...not me at all! (LOL) I pull my hair up in a pony tail and call it done :o)   I stamped Jasmine with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with a variety of coloring mediums: Bic It markers, SU markers, and Koh-i-Noor pencils with Goo-Gone (yes, that is quite a variety!) I did try something that I think is a light bulb moment for me...I colored the dress with my pencils and didn't think the red dots were quite "red" enough, so I went over them with my Ruby Red marker and it blended beautifully with no lines that I can tell.  I don't know if it was the Goo-Gone residue or what... 


Be sure to check out the rest of the In Style Stamps' Design Team for more creations using this sketch. There is also a prize being offered so create your own Thankful Thursday card using this sketch and post a link on the In Style Stamps blog to enter.  

I hope you have a great day!
