Congrats to you, Melissa, on your GD spot! Your first projects are fantastic, but that's no surprise as you are such a great designer! Looking forward to seeing more of your projects this month!

Carla won 11079MC Heart Benton Clear Set, which includes the stamps that Karen used on her project earlier this week:


Speaking of prizes, last month Tanya Phillips won 11014SC Brushed Calligraphy #3 Clear Set in a blog candy drawing:


Upon receiving her stamps, she couldn't wait to get them inked up right away. I was delighted when she emailed to show me the projects she'd created with them!

For this lovely card, she stamped the flower image in grey and painted with Twinkling H2O's to keep it soft looking, while making the sentiment darker so it stood out more:


On her second card, she embossed both the image and sentiment in white onto kraft paper and colored with pencils:


Wow, what a great idea...this really gives the stamps a dramatic appearance! I haven't used white embossing powder for a long time, but now I'll have to pull it out.

Thanks to Tanya for the inspiration and to everyone who welcomed Melissa to the Inky blog! We always appreciate your comments, whether or not they're attached to prizes. (Psst, there will be more opportunities to win again later this month, though...)
