For today's Sketch Challenge, SC151. When I was in Texas, I stamped the Thomas Kinkead image at Jennís house on some beautiful glimmer paper that she had. I canít remember the name of it now, but it is so soft and silky to the touch Ė and it actually glimmers! When I saw the sketch, I was sure I could make one of these images work. I trimmed the image down and did a very light wash of Antique Linen distress ink over the entire image. The glimmer still shows through, but in the photo it is very hard to see. I then sponged the edges a tad bit darker with the distress ink. To make the background panel, I stamped SUís Linen BG also in Antique Linen and then sponged those edges. The sentiment (from Glad Tidings by Lizzie Anne Designs) was stamped in Espresso on some of the scrap from the background panel and raised on mounting tape. I so wanted this to look like an old aged photo and with the church in the image, it reminded me of on of my favorite songs, Peace in the Valley.
