Hi crafty friends!
Are you ready for another one of
Cardztv Sketch Challenges??
Keep in mind the sketches are to start
your creative mojo! You don't have to follow them
exactly, but use them for inspiration.
I used Sketch 12 but turned the squares on the front
so the front square would accommodate by
set of trees. I used an embossing resist technique that
I saw on a YouTube video and I loved it so
much I wanted to recreate it.
I embossed the set of trees with clear embossing ink
and clear powder. Then I used some Tim Holtz blue distress ink
and began sponging in the center of my trees and to
the outside. I made sure that I got out all the way so
all of the trees would show up. I added some white gel
pen dots to look like snow and some sequins for sparkle.
What you cannot see is the sparkle mist I sprayed
lightly on the trees. Close up it is stunning.
Here is the same card on my tree!
I love using non-traditional colors for Christmas.
I am over the moon for this plaid.
My stamp set is the Big Holiday Wishes set!
Love these larger fonts - perfect finish on the front
on it's own banner stamped with black ink!
Are you ready to try your hand at a sketch challenge?
