Final Day of Stampin' Out Alzheimers

Yesterday was the final day of the week-long Stampin' Out Alzheimers challenge marathon. The total raised for the Alzheimers Association was well over $6,300. Not only was it a lot of creative fun, money will go to such a good cause. I'm sure many of us have been touched by Alzheimer's Disease in some form or another.

This card was another sketch challenge. I used one of the stamps from Flourishes' All Wrapped Up set, plus a sentiment from SU Riveting. I'm still getting the hang of using alcohol markers, trying to get shading is not the easiest -- but I'm learning. Most of my alcohol markers are Prismacolors, with some Copics added to the mix.

* Stamps - Flourishes' All Wrapped Up, SU Riveting
* Paper - Rose Red, Regal Rose DSP, Georgia Pacific White
* Ink - Palette Noir, Black, Rose Red
* Accessories - Prismacolor/Copic Markers, Circle punches, Ribbon, Brads

This card, also a sketch challenge, is actually going to another good cause. Anita Autore, who also participated in the Stampin' Out Alzheimers week, is gathering a box of cards to send to the 184th battallion of the Army Reserve Unit from California, which is currently serving in Kosovo. This cute little guy is from the Hero set from The Greeting Farm. I'm not sure of the name of the DCWV patterned paper, but it sort of looks like Army camouflage.

* Stamps - Hero by The Greeting Farm
* Paper - Chocolate Chip, River Rock, DCWV, Georgia Pacific White
* Ink - Palette Noir Black, Chocolate Chip, ColorBox Copper pigment
* Accessories - Prismacolor/Copic markers, Copper ep, Clear ep, Sponge daubers
