It's time for another Once Upon A Wednesday and we have another fabulous Special Guest Sketch Artist, the super talented Jay Jay! Make sure you visit her blog and see the beautiful card she did for us this week!
We also have a theme this week, inside out. We would like to see you decorate the inside and the outside of your card. Remember, each week you can choose to use the sketch or the theme or both!
Here is the inside of my cardI used the awesome CreaSeans Grillman Digital Stamp for my card. My papers are by Scenic Route and The Paper Temptress. The DAD brads I have had in my stash for years! I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and Odorless mineral spirits using a blending stump.

Here is this weeks sketch and as always Michelle has provided wonderful prizes for our winner!

Total Eclipse at Skipping Stones

This week I get to introduce the new Fangs and Fur set from Skipping Stones Design. This set will be released next week, just in time for the Eclipse premiere! I know all you Twilight lovers will agree that Jacob is just yummy!
This whole set is fabulous and has so many fun sayings to go with it. Watch for it!

Now on to our sketch for this week. We have the honor of another sketch from Teri at A bit of this. A bit of that.
I had so much fun playing with this sketch, Teri is just awesome!

Ok...back to Jacob *tee hee* I stamped him on water color paper and heat embossed with a clear (slightly glittered) embossing powder. I used Tim Holtz distress inks to add some color and then mounted him (blush) on Basis Brown cardstock. I used Cosmo Cricket DP and spellbinders dies for the tag and fun flower shapes. I kinda went crazy with the stitching on this card too. I added three different stitches with Madeira rayon thread in gold. I hope you like it and can join us this week.
