Coffee with Holly

One of the sweetest stampers in the world is Holly, a.k.a. Toy on SCS!! She hosted a Dare to be Dirty challenge last week, a sketch challenge. She encouraged many layers. I am ALWAYS amazed on how many layers she puts on--WITHOUT it looking cluttered or overdone!!! I however--can't. I know why--she plans ahead and works out her design in MS Paint before she cuts into a single sheet of paper. I am more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants stamper.

So here is what I came up with:

DTGD08Holly Coffee

She also makes a lot of her own dp to match her image when needed--I can do that!!

Thanks to Tim Holtz Distress inks, some fine watercolor brushes, and watercolor paper--I have my own dp!

Thanks, Holly for a fantastic sketch--perhaps I will try the MS Paint thing.......someday!
