Sketch Challenge


Here is my card for today's challenge on SCS. I just love sketch challenges and if you want to play along HERE is the link. I broke out my new Christmas set from crafty secrets. I just love the vintage flavour to them and it suited the yummy dp I bought (be good by Cosmo Cricket). I used my copics to color. I loved that this image I could color the background of the santa and there was a clear line that I could color the outside of the circle with a different color. I used Burnt Umber and Moulin Rouge Palette inks. I love tying in my colors on my stickpins.

Tip: I colored beads with my copics then placed them on, being sure to add glue into the last bead on the string. Take care to slide your beads only far enough on to cover the sharp end of the pin (so you won't make anyone bleed when they open your card)!

I am sure you are all watching Nichole's countdown to her new Papertrey releases....I can't wait! If you aren't click on her link "capture the moment" on my sidebar.
Looking forward to showing you my samples with MFT....it will be here soon!
Happy Stamping!
