Going Digital at Cards for Men

We're back!  Cards for Men is reopened for business after our Summer break and we're raring to go!  Our challenge is "Going Digital".

"Going Digital" is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and the winner of this challenge will receive 3 digis of their choice!

"I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor 2 Sketches 4 You. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for UnityStampCo. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.

"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week."

I used "Back to School Chemistry Set" from The Stamping Boutique for my card.  I colored the digital image with my Copic markers and added some Glossy Accents to the liquid and goggle lens and distressed the edges with Soot Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from Potionmaster set by Kraftin' Kimmie and the layout is based on a sketch from Graphicat Sketches.

Make sure to drop by Cards for Men and check out the creations from our talented Design Team, we have a couple new additions to the team so stop in and say hi.  Don't forget to check out the fun designs by The Stamping Boutique too!
