Hello! Today starts another Inky Paws Challenge, and this one is a sketch challenge. I’ve seen so many Christmas cards on social media for Christmas in July, so I thought I’d join the party with this sketch challenge. I just adore this image from Winston’s Home for Christmas!
For a change, I picked out my patterned papers (from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Fall) BEFORE I started coloring. Let me tell ya, that is so much easier than the reverse! I stamped the Santa hat first, masked it, and then stamped the image of Winston before going to town with my Copics. I used Your Next Stamp’s Cool Tag Die to die-cut the image and added some red ribbon from my stash.
I die-cut the patterned papers with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies and adhered them to a kraft card. Using my MISTI, I stamped and heat-embossed a sentiment from Winston’s Home for Christmas and then popped up my tag with foam tape. For some interest and bling, I added some highlights with a white gel pen, some Zig Wink of Stella, and some clear sequins.
Thanks for stopping by! You have until Friday, August 11th, at midnight CST to link up a project for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Newton’s Nook Designs. I can’t wait to see what you create!
