Karolyn - Digits Blog Hop
My sample features the new Digits stamp set.  There are also two die sets to coordinate with these stamps – one set that will work perfectly with the stamps, and another set that can be used without the stamp set and is super fun!  When I saw these fun and funky numbers, I immediately thought of drawing on a chalk board.  Since the chalkboard trend is such a big thing these days, I decided to give it a go.  I stamped the ones using white pigment ink onto chalkboard card stock.  I then outlined the ones with a drafting pencil to give that “shadow” look.  The chalkboard is a design from the Silhouette Online Store.  You can find the products that I used listed below my signature.
I’ll be back in a couple of hours to share my CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge card with you, so I hope you;ll come back to visit later on today!  I plan to spend the rest of my day in my craft room trying to get caught up on some deadlines!  Hope you have some fun crafty plans in store for your future!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
