Tinsel Tuesday March sketch

Third month of Tinsel Tuesday has come round so quickly! So far I have made 4 cards for Christmas already following the first two sketches…

What’s more I am not the only one. Karen joined in again last month and sent me this picture of her three creations based around the sketch I provided!

Aren’t they fab? And so different each of them although using a similar colour scheme for all three. Well done Karen! Love them!

This months sketch is here for you to join in too!

I used the sketch to create this card…

This was a bit of an experiment! I used a card blank that I had stamped for the cards I made my cousin last year and ran out of toppers for … Never one to throw away I have a stash of these so expect to see more appear during the year! Ha ha!

I then added a topper which I created using the Papermania background stamp stamped in Soft Suede and inked the edges of. I decided to emulate the starburst by inking some lines with the Rich Razzleberry and a sponge. Not sure about whether this worked or not … But hey as I said this was a bit of an experiment card!

Then I created a little extra topper from the stamp off this months Craft Stamper magazine and water coloured it with the same ink.

I decided it needed a little colour so added mats in Rich Razzleberry, and a gold punched border and then a strip of lovely ribbon to finish it off!

Now I come to a small problem … I didn’t get round to making a second card as decided last night to get on with painting the bathroom instead! So before the month is out I will get round to doing the other card and will share it with you on another Tuesday instead!

For now though … Happy crafting!
