Huge apologies for the delay with the challenge - some technical problems to sort through! Many thanks to all who joined in with our 'Rain' challenge - some wonderful cards to check out again!
This week's challenge is a Sketch from the inspirational Becky. I have called it Becky's sketch No. 1 because if we speak nicely to her she may come up with some more!! The sketch is below:-
Also this week Becky is giving away a 'Mystery Christmas Present' to one lucky person picked at random. If you want to be in with a chance of this one please have your card up and linked by Midnight on Monday 8th December.
Now for some examples from the Design Team.
I coloured Tilda and Edwin with Pro Markers and placed them onto Cuttlebug embossed card. I then added ribbon, brads, flowers and a sentiment.
I stamped the scribble snowman with black Stazon then water coloured him in. Stickles were added to his scarf and hat to make him look snowy. I then added glossy accents to his eyes and buttons. I used a Cuttlebug folder for the strip behind the snowman. The papers were a freebie from a craft magazine. It was all finished off with a blue snowflake held in place with a blue brad.
I stamped an image using an Elusive Image stamp and used Dovecraft papers for the background. Finishing off with a message, Prima and brads.
I covered a 5" square card blank with co-ordinating papers, stamped the image and coloured with Prisma pencils, blending with Sansador then doodled around the edge. I thread some string through a chipboard button, attached this to the base then finally added the Hi sentiment and two hearts.
I enjoyed this sketch and kept things pretty much as they should be apart from turning the center piece to a different angle! I have used a flourish stamp from Autumn Leaves, Flower stamps from Elusive Images an unknown greeting stamp and the XOXO is from Printworks. The flower has been stamped onto card and popped through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder before being mounted with 3D foam pads. Embellished with black satin ribbon and some black iridescent beads.
