Freshly Made Sketches #350

Hey Everyone

Would you like to see our latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches?  Here tis:

Don’t you love this sketch? I hope you say yes because it’s mine! lol

I’ve been wanting to use Blended Seasons for a Christmas card since I received it.  I chose to make a wreath from the garland stamp from this set.  After stamping four garlands, I gave the leaves and berries the lightest of watercolour and then set about fussy cutting them all out.  I then created a shaker with some retired Stampin’ Up! Christmas sequins and then glued my wreath together around the circle shaker.  After standing my card up to photograph it, I realised my shaker doesn’t shake.  I think the dimensional I stuck under the sentiment (also from Blended Seasons) is obstructing my sequins to move about.  After I took the photo, I repaired the obstructing dimensional and now my card shakes like it’s supposed to…

The little bell I’ve used on my card is also from Blended Seasons.  I gave it a light watercolour with Basic Gray Ink.  I then gave the bell a quick once over with my Wink of Stella Pen.  It’s so glittery in real life and really adds a sparkle that I think of when I think of Christmas.  It also balances out my off-centre wreath.  The background got a bit of treatment with Mossy Meady ink splatters from Timeless Textures.

Yay for the latest addition to my Chrissy card stash!

The girls have created gorgeous cards with my sketch.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.
