2nd post of the day, please scroll down to read my earlier post
As you probably all know, Saturday is sketchie day over on craftbubble's Craft Mad & Loving It group and we have another sketch set today, by Lauren (aka BlueBertie). She's opted for (in her words) a simple sketch with the twist of "BERRY BRIGHTS". Hmmmmmmmmmmm, so here's the sketch .............
It's a nice sketch and one I SHOULD be able to achieve with my stash here in Florida, but I'm struggling with berries . . . .
However, I had reckoned without some fab red holly paper from my DCWV Christmas papers stack AND the holly image in my recent Inkadinkado stamp set - YAY!!! I had the spotty paper (acquired for a previous sketchie challenge) and the silver "Dots" were from Joann's and cost a dollar for about 20. I stamped my image in black then water coloured the holly leaf and berries before over stamping with my glue pad and then flittering with Crystal glamour dust. I also stamped the holly image on my envelope and will highlight that with stickles.
This five hour time lag is really confusing me as it's not even 09:00 and I've done my sketchie but I'm not first to post . . . the lovely Andy (Wynneth's dad) posted his ages ago, and very nice it is too.
Hope you like it, looking forward to hearing from you all.
