Skipping Stones Design: Sketch #111 + a Sale!

It's time for Skipping Stones Design Sketch #111! This week's sketch was a little easier for me because I had fun interpreting those circles and putting my own little spin on it. Instead of repeating the same image across the card, I used the coffee ring stamp from Funny Coffee, Vol. #1 and stamped it across the countertop which I created using the splatter background stamp from the newly-released Grunge Two set. The saucer and the coffee cup represent the last two circles on the sketch. The rest is straight forward. I hope you will play along with this fun sketch this week for a chance to win stamps from Skipping Stones Design!

That splatter background is great -- I don't do DIY splatter very well, so this would work for me! It makes a messy counter but part of a great card!

Ooooo! The coffee rings and splatters are awesome. I was just looking at some digital stuff like that, but I'll have to check out the SSD. Fab paper piecing!! LOVE!!
