Well after announcing that my first card for Willow Sketchie Challenge would be next week here I am!So here’s the fabby sketch Lis-M designed :
Hope you can join us!We’d love to see what you do with the sketch!There’s some great inspiration from the DT too.
You don’t need to use a Willow Designs image but it would be great if you did.The shop offers lots other wonderful crafty goodies too like the rather yummy fabric panels,CD-roms and ProMarkers galore!Well worth a visit.
For my card I’ve used the adorable All I Want For Christmas from Willow Designs.I’ve used the pre-coloured image (you also get an uncoloured digi stamp) these are a joy to use when you’re short of time.Of course there’s nothing wrong with putting them on your card as they are but being me I decided to dress him up a bit by giving him some glassy eyes and fluffy trim to his hat.I’ve also inked around him to tone down the whiteness of the card I printed him onto.The panel behind him has been embossed then inked to enhance the pattern.I added a die cut flower with a yummy button and baker’s twine centre and parts of a swirl die plus some of my fave grossgrain ribbon.I couldn’t help but think of the song when making this card so stamped part of a ‘Love You’ stamp along with an exclamation mark.The only person I could possibly give this card to is my DH!Hmmmm…or maybe our new dog.LOL.Decisions,decisions…Supplies : Image : All I Want For Christmas from Willow Designs Semtiment : From Crafter’s Companion Clearly Hand Stamped Kit by 3 Birds Mediums : Glossy Accents,Polar White Flower Soft,Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue,Desert Sand Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad,Jet Black Archival Ink Pad Papers & Card ; DP Basic Grey Jovial 6 x 6 Pad,Kraft and red from stash Tools : X-Cut guillotine,Siesta Lip Pattern Corner Punch,Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder,Marianne Design Flower Fantasy Set,Swirls from Marianne Design Circles Frame Set,Big Shot Embellishments : Dovecraft red grossgrain ribbon,We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Fancy Floss Baker’s Twine Primary.Papermania Button Tube Orange Brown
