Bonus Post - Retro Sketches

Bonus Friday Post !!

I got my act together today (kinda) and put together a little something for one of my favorite challenge sketch blogs. I don't know if I've mentioned before, but I love challenge blogs! Although I don't play as often as I'd like - I always peek at them for inspiration! 

One of my favorite challenge blogs is Retro Sketches 

Not only are they full of talented crafters - but, the sketches are REALLY inspiring. There is not a week that goes by that I don't stop in and think 'WOW, I'm totally using this sketch' --- I don't always get to it. But, I do love them. 

(Disclaimer, Sweet Stamp Shop has no affiliation with Retro Sketches so these thoughts are just from Nicole's little crafty opinionated brain) 

Anyway, enough gooshing.... ready to see this weeks sketch? 

I loved it and was imidiately inspired! 

Here is my take on it. 

I used 'Midway' by October Afternoon - Simple Sentiments Stamp Set (by SSS) - Vellum - Glitter (Martha Stewart) - and some watercoloring splatter! 

I have a post coming up really soon showing you how to add glitter splatter to your projects. If you're a fellow glitter addict, you're going to freak out and start adding splatter glitter to your walls - your husband - your everything!! Stay tuned for that! 

Otherwise, thanks for checking in for the second time today - hopefully it was worth it! 

Happy Stamping!
