Winter Fun


Good Tuesday morning!  It's time for another sketch challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our sponsor for the week is Lil' Inker Designs and the image I'm working with today is from the Sugar Kissed Cottage collection; it's called "A Snowman's Soul".  I love the vintage flair!

I thought the image would go perfectly with a some Carta Bella DP that I've been hoarding...I love the muted  colors.  The image is colored with pencils, cut, and mounted with Spellbinder's dies.  I've added some embossing and a diecut snowflake with just a hint of subtle glitter.

Image: Lil' Inker Designs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: SU! Blue Bayou and Cranberry Crisp, Carta Bella "Winter Fun" 6x6 Pad
Embellie: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Tim Holtz Embossing Folder, MFT "Let it Snowflake" Die-namics , The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations using this fun sketch...why not play along?!

I love the vintage feel, too!! Your coloring matches the DP perfectly!!

I love the little scene. I like stamps that are already a scene so you don't have to try to make one. You did a beautiful job on this! Love your coloring.

Love the oval and the colored digi image. And how richly dark your card base is which sets off the focus on the digi image.

Thanks for joining us at Kaboodle Doodles’ “Winter” Challenge!
