As you all know by now, Saturday is Sketchie Day over on craftbubble and this week's sketch has been set by fellow craftapalooza-ite, Karen, and a very lovely sketch it is too. The twist this week is to feature snowflakes - not hard since most of us are firmly entrenched in making our Christmas cards. I am in Florida presently (as most of you also know) and only have access to limited stash but, luckily, I did get to Michael's in Lakeland recently and found some iridescent snowflakes that I have been on the trail of ....... for well over a year. Equally lucky that I bought several packs because I don't think I could sacrifice many otherwise!!!!
And so, here is my take on this super sketch.. I did have a rather strange start since I stamped and glittered a lovely candy cane image before deciding not to go ahead with it - still not sure why but hey . . . . my crafting has always been a tad organic and sometimes takes twists. I stamped an Inkadinkado swirl (using the Hampton Art glue pad) on a piece of burgundy card and applied gold glamour dust before mounting on white card. I rounded the corners on all the card and paper used today. I cut two narrow panels of the same burgundy card. I stamped my Penny Black clear pine bough in black versafine ink on white card and then again in the H.A. glue pad and again applied gold glamour dust before mounting on burgundy card and likewise stamped my sentiment on white then burgundy. I used a piece of DCWV winter paper stack as the backing paper and then attached two of my fab iridescent snowflakes as the twist was "snowflakes" - hope you like it.
It's turning in to a beautiful day here and this is the view from my pool deck, morning cows!!
