Tinsel Tuesday November sketch

Regular readers of my blog will know I am a fan of setting myself some challenges at the beginning of the year… Well I haven’t done so well at meeting the challenges … But you know what I don’t care. I join in when I feel like it, and can be pretty faddy at times so quite often after an obsession has passed, a new one will arrive. Having said that this month I have at least tried to do Tinsel Tuesday… Although only made it to one card!


I wonder what you make from this sketch??? I made the following as a result of being inspired by the sketch…


Ok I didn’t do the best job of keeping to the sketch but hey ho! This was really a big old inky bit of fun. Three layers of distress inked watercolour papers to create this vintage style card.

I used a mixture of Peeled Paint, Evergreen Bough, Weathered Wood & Fired Brick and some freebie HOTP stamps to create this. The diagonal line I switched direction on and used the snowflake stamp in Fired Brick to create in the bottom layer. I also ended up creating a sentiment topper too which wasn’t really in keeping with the sketch…but it was my starting point I promise!

So wonder if I will do anymore of my challenges… You will have to watch this space!

happy crafting!
