double whammy

Is whammy really the right word? I just think of that old game show, Press Your Luck and the little whammy cartoon guys that would wipe out the scores. No Whammies, NO WHAMMIES!! Heh! Sorry, got stuck in memory lane there for a sec... loved that show... So today I thought I'd do 2 challenges in one, both from splitcoaststampers - Tuesday's color challenge {groovy guava, whisper white, and sahara sand} and Wednesday's sketch challenge. This one is pretty straight forward, but I used blender pens with my classic ink pads to color in the image and then I traced over it with diamond Stickles. Such an awesome way to add glitter without making a huge mess.

Detail shot

There is another scrapbook challenge over at the Pagemaps blog, so I'll be checking that out. Maybe if I enter enough times I'll eventually win, right? sigh...

Thanks for stopping by - see you back soon!
