Sketch # 139

Hello Friends,
    This week the sketch from Atlantic hearts is so versatile! I made another Christmas card with an image I coloured some time ago. I love it! here is my card....
I embossed the background slightly and used last years paper pack just because it matched well the image I had coloured. I think I need some words on there somewhere......
Oh here is the sketch...I think I followed it perfectly

What will you make with this awesome sketch?

Christmas Card workshop

Hello Crafty friends,
    Here are some pictures of cards we made in this years Christmas card workshop, as well as some others I made and an altered Journal for some craft fairs I attended. I sold out of every journal I made this year! First card uses CTMH new Sapphire ink and cardstock and retired swirls and snowflakes. We used the emboss resist technique.
This card is coloured with water colour paints, cut out and popped up for dimension. 

This card used sponging colours from lighest around the moon then stamping the trees and sentiment in black. tried to stamp snow with the white daisy ink but it doesn't show up well.
 This next card uses the crayon resist technique. Where there is white it was coloured with white crayon and then colour sponged over top.
This card we coloured the cardinal with water colour pencil's.

And finally the polar bears were coloured with our markers. Just cardstock on this card and the white is torn to look like snow.

So which card is your favourite? I was really happy with how they all turned out! Cant wait until my next card workshop in the new year for "birthday cards"
Have a crafty day!

Sketch challange # 135

Hello Crafty friends,
    I made a quick card for this weeks sketch at Atlantic Hearts. I embossed the words with gold, and for the background I used the bigshot embossing folder and to give it some more dimension I ran the cranberry ink over the raised parts. Here is my card....

and here is the sketch. I am missing a few of the elements but the essence is the same.


what do you think? I hope you will play along with us!

And here is the sketch I used as inspiration from Atlantic Hearts Sketch

Hope you can play along!!

October SOTM Twinkle

Hello crafty friends,
   I wanted to play with the October stamp of the month but it really had me stumped. After looking around I found inspiration in the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!

and here is my card...Sorry for the picture quality...I need to work on that. Just used my iPhone. I used cranberry and glacier ink, winter wishes for the snow flakes, bitty sparkles, white shimmer trim.
I hope you like it!
