I found some time to catch up on the Christmas sketches over at Craftmad - (Pinterest album here) - some beautiful takes on this sketch.
I am sticking with my own challenge of making three cards with each of these sketches. I started with the sketch then found this christmas image that I had coloured with copics on holidays last July. The image gave me the colours to use. I originally had more of the pink in the layers instead of the spotted vellum but it was just too much. Glad I found the spotted the spotted vellum to add amongst the silver and green card stocks.
Another image I coloured with copics last July (everything eventually gets used). I went over the wings and the ribbon with my silver wink pen so it has a lovely sparkle when the light hits it just right which I could not get in a photo. Sorry I can't remember the brand of this beautiful Christmas paper (edit- Thanks Mandy for reminding method this is Allison Ellis paper) but I love the silver ornaments and it matched the blues I had used so well.
While creating my other cards I found a book of Christmas pyramid images. I thought this rectangle shaped one was perfect for the sketch. Nine layers. I teamed the image with the green bazzill bling which I ran through a snowflake embossing folder then added this to layers of purple. The Merry Christmas is washi tape from my stash.
This makes a total of seven Christmas cards ready for the end of the year. Yay!!!!!
Yesterday we had friends over for drinks and I searched through Pinterest for quick, easy Easter snacks that weren't chocolate related. I came across a photo like this and just couldn't resist the bit of fun - this was quick and easy to put together. Although I will have to refine my art skills as everyone thought it was a dog. However, there was only a head left by the end of the afternoon so it was a success. :-)
Have a terrific day everyone. I know I will as the long weekend starts off two weeks of holidays which I am looking forward to. Although I enjoy travelling there are no plans for that but lots of gardening, sewing, a little card making and catching up with friends.
