Sketch 2 of the Technostamper Challenge by Mary Jo Williams was fun -- a bit more challenging than last week, but I thought the layout was more interesting. My rendition of the sketch uses the Dry Embossed Wash technique on the semi-circle, and Faux Denim on the background of the top layer. Both of these techniques are from the December 2007 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I also VersaMarked the edge of the blue circle to add glittery translucent embossing powder. Mary Jo's sketch is below -- make sure to check out her blog for the other players!
