Non-traditional Christmas


Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the Tuesday Morning Sketches gang; this week our sponsor is Close To My Heart and it's our judged challenge...non-traditional Christmas.  The set I'm using is called Love Blooms and it would be perfect for scrapbook pages.


The flowers and leaves are stamped in 2 steps...first the outline, then the middle.  I have used brown for the outline, and Versamark for the middle.  I then cut my flowers out.  DP is PTI; I did a bit of distressing and added some ribbon and Swarovski flatbacks.

Images: Close To My Heart "Love Blooms"
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Tsukineko Versamark
Paper: PTI Scarlet Jewel, Dark Chocolate, and Ripe Avocado, PTI DP
Embellies: Wright's Brown Grosgrain Ribbon, Swarovksi Flatback Crystals in "Ruby" and "Smokey Topaz"
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, QuicKutz "Celebrate" Basic Phrases Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will head on over to TMS to check out the sketch and the DT's creations.  Why not play along?

Thanks for stopping by today!
