RCC16 Sketch Time with Danielle and Amber Ink!

Hey everyone! I am back from my honeymoon as the new "Mrs. Barth"! Since I missed posting last week's RCC14 Top Spools and random prize winner, I will be posting them THIS FRIDAY, along with the RCC15 Top Spools and random prize winner. I really appreciate your patience with this....and my new hubby does too! ;) Now on to our new challenge!

LinkDanielle is challenging us to use one of her “go to” sketches as this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge (RCC16).

And this week, we’re being joined by the Design Team of our sponsor, AMBER INK! AmberInk is giving one randomly selected participant a $15 Gift Certificate to their store!
AmberInk was started by a mother and daughter team. Amber lives in the East, Pam lives in the West. Amber is an Emmy nominated children's animator and illustrator, who creates from her Brooklyn, New York studio. Although they do carry some clear stamps, the company runs by the premise that their customers are more brilliant than patient. If you've been a diehard clear or rubberstamper, they can even help you with the transition to digital. And don't worry about asking a silly question, because as a retired public high school teacher, Pam has already seen it all. Check out the ever-increasing tutorial links, which you can find on the homepage. Hailing from the Hawaiian Islands, the Aloha Spirit is alive and well at AmberInk.com.

Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings, anything will work!

*** Please remember that your creation must include ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

Here's some inspiration from the Carousel Crew:

We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:
  • Make your creation following the ribbon carousel challenge of the week. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like SplitcoastStampers, (use the keyword RCC16) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
  • Link up your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up, but don't worry, it will appear shortly.
  • Be sure to come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool! :D
This Challenge will end on August 22, 2011 at 11:59pm EST.
