As a company, we wanted to do something to give back to the people who have been so devastated by the Haitian Earthquake. So we thought what better way than to invite some of our favorite stampers to join us in this cause. Each card you see on the blog hop today will be auctioned on E-bay with all proceeds going to the Red Cross in support of the Haitian Relief Effort (please check the Skipping Stones Design Website for the link to the auction). 100% of the proceeds of the Ebay auction and $2.00 from every stamp set purchased from February 16 - 22 will be donated to the Red Cross. We know that we can make a difference.
Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another great creation from Belinda of Bella Bleu Paperie. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch. Just remember to use the keywords SSD012 if you are uploading to any online galleries or link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. We'll be looking soon for Guest Designers so you never know....
This sketch had me stumped...So many stamps, so many choices... what to do???? I searched through my stamps and my DP for hours. Kim Teasdale even got a phone call or two about it... I had a totally different stamp picked but changed it when I found the DP. I can't believe I've never noticed the pattern in this Basic Grey DP. (Does that mean I have too much DP??) I've used the strawberry and sentiment from the set Chocolate Vol. 2 (not released yet - I'm tempting you aren't I?)Hehehe....
I've colored the image with my Tombow Markers (my go to marker). I'm excited that Tombow will be having a "Specialist Degree" class that you can take (I understand it's along the same lines as having Copic Certification). I added Glossy Accents to the Chocolate to try to make it look like it was dripping from the Strawberry. I really like how it turned out.
Thank you for stopping by and your next blog to hop to is the amazing Kim Teasdale.
If there is a break somewhere along the way, there will be a master list at:
