Craft Stampers Guest Designer

Most of you know that in July I won Craft Stampers monthly challenge. The prize is profile on their blog, a guest designer place and a two page spread in their monthly magazine which is due out in November.
This is the card I submitted as a Guest Designer. I had so much fun playing with Distress Oxide inks and embossing paste and stamps, it seemed so fitting to use this great stamp by Viva Las Vegas with the mason jar with the paint brushes.

Thanks for dropping by and I love to hear you comments.
