Christmas krafting

It’s my turn to play host at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week and here’s  my sketch :

I’ve also chosen the theme of Get Krafty – use kraft paper/card in your project.You can either work with the sketch and/or theme.You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used Fast Asleep clear stamp by Willow Designs.I’ve stamped onto kraft card and coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.The fluffy bits of the image have been coloured with a white gel pen and once it dried I shaded the edges with a pale grey Copic Ciao Marker.The two kraft squares were dry embossed.I stamped the sentiment and snowflake on the triangular piece.Some pearl brads have been added to embellish.As you can probably tell I rotated the sketch.

Supplies :

Image : Fast Asleep clear stamp by Willow Designs
Sentiment : Woodware Clear Magic ‘Must Have’ Christmas Words
Mediums : Memento Tuxedo Black and Bahama Blue (stamped off a couple of times for a more subtle look) Dew Drop Ink Pads,Copic Sketch and Ciao Markers,Sakura White Gelly Roll pen
