This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my post with a FREE Whimsie Doodles image announcement in support of Breast Cancer Research!
Can you believe that we are up to sketch number 20 already at Sweet Sketch Wednesday? I hope that you have been playing along! Many weeks there are chances for you to win some free stamps, so I hope you will start to use the sketches and play along with us.
Here is this week's sketch...
This week we were sponsored by the Digistamp Boutique. Sally-Ann Hancock designs these stamps and has graciously offered a prize for the winner of this week's challenge. For details on how to enter, please visit the SSW blog.
She graciously offered some of her stamps for the DT to use for today's challenge. The first card that I made uses Milly Singing Carols.
The DP that I used is from a K&Co collection that I got last year for Christmas. I am really loving more non-traditional colors for my Christmas cards this year!
Milly and her sweet little side kick were colored using Copic markers. The image panel was cut with one of my label Nesties.
The snowflake punch is from MS and to accent the snow, I added some dimensional glaze to the landscape and then sprinkled Snow Glitter on top of it. The ribbon is a Target Dollar Spot find that coordinated perfectly and I also added some lace from Joann's to give it a bit of a vintage look.
My second card uses the Digistamp Boutique image called Christmas Robin.
Again the papers are from the same K&Co Christmas collection and the brown CS base is from The Paper Co. To create the border of holly leaves, I simply printed the digistamp multiple times and colored each set of Holly leaves and then cut them out. I then lined them up on my card to form the border that you see here. The sentiment I created using Word Art in Power Point.
This red-breasted robin and all the Holly leaves were colored using my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I added a touch of red stickles to the holly berries on my main image.
