Happy Sketch Day, everyone!  Today’s post will be a little longer than usual…I’m not only bringing you today’s sketch sample, but I’m also previewing one of the new releases from There She Goes!  So if you’ve come here from LISA’S BLOG, then you’re in the right place! :)

Now for this week’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge #84:

Chris Dark LogoI am so excited for today’s sneak peeks of the brand new, beautifully illustrated stamp set by Chris Dark!  Jessica has been wanting to have a stamp set like this included in the TSG Collection for a very long time, and Chris was able make her ideas come to life. This Asian-inspired stamp set includes many beautiful images and sentiments that you are going to love to use on a regular basis!

The Journey” is a 6x8 stamp set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $24.

Would you like a chance to win the “The Journey” stamp set? Here’s what you need to do: go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their The Journey Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog to add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own The Journey stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (July 31st) during the Release Party Chat.

***Make sure to stop by the TSG Blog on Friday to see new TSG Tips & Tricks sheets featuring the brand new stamp sets! The Tip Sheets will also be available to download as PDF files so that you can print them out to keep on hand for easy access during stamping :)  Your next stop on the hop is PAM’S BLOG!

Now let’s see what the Muses have in store for us today:

Now it's your turn! Create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and add your creation using the InLinkz linking system below.  Be sure to use the keyword MTSC84 when uploading to a public gallery.  Be sure that your link works before you leave the sketch post, and I will post “Mercy’s Magnificent Musings” on Sunday!

Happy Stamping!
