Snow Swirled Sketch Challenge

APP11KerinSylvester

Today's card was made using the sketch at Always Playing with Paper…woah, I don't know what's up, but I had a heck of a time coming up with this card! I think it's because I picked my main image (which was too big) and then HAD to fit it into the sketch because I was stuck on it…you should have seen me in my stamp room for over an hour throwing away everything I started to make before I came up with this card…I don't know if I'm happy with it because I like it, or if I'm happy with it because I can let go of using that Christmas tree now!

Anyway, I inked up the Christmas tree with Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Always Artichoke ink, then stamped  it on Shimmery White cs. Then I blocked off the edges with post-it notes and sponged over the whole thing with Always Artichoke. I added some rhinestone jewels, and the texture is from the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. The greeting is from the Curly Cute set, and the card stock colors are Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Kerin,
    I know how you feel! So often I have had in my mind that I had to use a specific stamp for the sketch… and gotten myself into a very similar situation. However, I am glad you perservered – I love the way you inked up the tree and the texturing is just perfect!
    Thanks for joining the Paper Players again this week
