I’ve had an idea in my head that’s been inspired by a few challenges over the past week or so, but until today, hadn’t had chance to get it onto paper. Now I have … and so get to play along at those challenges that haven’t yet expired! The My Favorite Things blog has been a favorite stop off point for me for a while and I always thought that to enter their sketch challenge you needed their stamps. I don’t have any … yet … there are loads in the wish book! Yesterday though, I spotted that I can play without … so I am, for the first time … yay! I’m also joining in at CAS-ual Fridays where the theme’s embossing, at SSS Wednesday where we’re keeping it clean and simple and at SSS Monday (Got Ink?).
I used the sketch as inspiration, rather than following it to the letter … a deep blue layer, patterned vellum for the swirly snowdrift, a Waltzing Mouse sentiment following the snowline, a PTI Christmas tree, stamped, embossed with holographic EP, adorned with a wee gem and popped up on foam dots … and finally a twinkly moon (also PTI, also holographic embossed). Most of the shimmery glittery-ness is lost in the photo … but try as I might, I haven’t been able to capture it. IRL it’s so sparkley and pretty.
That it for tonight … time for bed. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments make my day! Anita 🙂
