Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge with Antiqued Glimmers

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Sorry for the delay in posting today, I had my post almost finished, and we lost our phone service.  Yes unfortunately I'm one of those who still needs to use dial up for computer access.  Long story short, I'd have to have a 5 foot tower on my roof to get high speed.....So without further grumbling from me, I hope you enjoy today's post.  Special thanks to Emily for letting me borrow her computer to get my post up today. 

I hope you've been staying warm this week, at least with all the cold weather and snow, we all have a good reason to stay in and stamp!

I'm loving the look of the Antiqued Glimmers from the current Technique Junkies Newsletter.  To create my background using the technique, I used Ranger Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters and Mustard Seed, my choice for Glimmer Mist is Pearl - I just love light sparkly color.  After my Antiqued Glimmers dried, I stamped Stampin' Up!'s Gratuitous Graffiti in Black Archival, then added the Baroque from Friends 24-7 in the same Distress Inks as my background colors.  The bird panel is also done wiht the Antiqued Glimmers, stamped the bird from Friends 24-7 in Black Archival and added the Baroque in Spiced Marmalade.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in Black Archival using a SAMJ. 

This week I gave the Bloggers Challenge Players this sketch to work with, if you'd like to play along, just leave me a comment with a link to your card, I'd love to see what you created.  I also have another Sneak Peek of one of the new Kitchen Sink Stamps being released next week, it also uses this weeks Bloggers Challenge Sketch.  I'll be posting the full card on Monday - so be sure to check back!  You're gonna love this months Kitchen Sink release!
