Sketch Saturday #26

sketch-saturday-26-aHi folks!!

Saturdays seem to roll around quicker and quicker these days.  Which is great as it’s Sketch Saturday time again. This week Jo has come up with another fabulous sketch. I’ve used the opportunity to add to my little pile of Christmas cards for those special folk in my life.

The patterned paper and wine textured cardstock is all DCWV.  I distressed the edges using a dewdrops ink pad.  I embossed a gold panel using my Cuttlebug. The little girl and baubles at the top are from the latest Tilda club collection.  

sketch-saturday-26-bI cut round the baubles and layered them onto circles (die cut with my trusty Nestabilities) using glue gel to add dimension and so that I could adhere the tiny coils of wire I made to the top of each one.  I coloured the image with Prismas, sansodor and paper stumps. The sentiment is a peel off and I have accented this panel with coloured faux gems.  Looking at the photo I think I’ll add some glitter to highlight her wing. (will I ever learn when to stop ‘tinkering’ with a card?)


If you’re free today and want to come and chat/craft… I’m demoing at The Craft Barn all day today.  Hopefully see you there!
