Addicted to Stamps & More Sketch

It's time for another sketch challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!
This week's challenge is being sponsored by All That Scraps.  They will be offering a rubber stamp prize for the winner!  Yay! 
As soon as I saw this sketch I knew that I wanted to turn it sideways so I could use my brand new Come to Bethlehem stamp set that just showed up at my door unexpectedly yesterday. I wasn't expecting it to be here until Thursday, so it was quite the surprise!
I had seem someone do a similar technique on a swap at the Lansing Regionals, so I decided to try it myself.  I stamped the image on Bashful Blue Cardstock, then sponged the edges with Bashful Blue and Early Espresso ink.  I then covered the entire image with VersaMark and heat set Heat & Stick powder over the top. While it was still warm I poured Dazzling Details over the top and heat set it a little. My entire house is now sparkly. :)  I had to take scotch tape to my face just so I was presentable enough to leave the house last night!  My cards sure does look nice and sparkly though, so it was worth it.

Stamp Set: Come to Bethlehem
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla
Ink: Bashful Blue, Early Espresso, VersaMark
