DRS Designs first challenge

Well, I did my first challenge for DRS Designs and it is the first time I have played with their stamps. The challenge was to use inchies on your card. Here are all the details if you would like to play along. You can also see what the other DT members did with the challenge so check it out!

I started by coloring part of my stamp with a black marker. I did this because one little lady bug fit perfectly in a 1" square. I colored the ladybugs with my prismacolor markers and added crystal effects to the black dots. I stamped my middle panel but used scotch tape to mask off the "red" so that I could color only that word with my red marker. I used a corner punch to highlight the image and added rhinestones in the corner. The awesome layout is from Julee Tillman who is doing 12 sketches for annivervsary. You can check out the details here.
