From the Heart Stamp generously provides free digital images for those who participate in their monthly challenges. In addition, they offer 1.00 off coupons for participation in the sketch challenge. I like to do a “twofer”, meaning, I use the sketch offered and the Stamp of the Month image and enter both! I love this month’s stamp. I colored him with Copics and used My Mind’s Eye “Winter Wonderland” 6 x 6 pad. The circle die is from My Favorite Things and the Scallop Circle from Spellbinders. I’ve never seen a green birdbrain but thought I’d give it a whirl.
Happy Tuesday! That means it’s time for a new Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch and this week we are celebrating Family! What a perfect theme for this time of year and I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than to highlight the ugly sweater. We may not want to admit it but we’ve all gotten one at one time or another from family. The sketch challenge runs through Monday, December 22nd and I look forward to seeing how you use this sketch and if you want to, the family theme.
Now, here’s the sketch and my inspiration for you:
I used Art Impression’s Ugly Sweater stamp that included the sentiment and colored her with Copic Markers. The paper was from 2013’s Simon Says Stamp extra card kit and the postage edge was created using a Fiskar’s punch. The gold strip is some great Sparkle tape from Darice that doesn’t rub off and is self-adhesive. Now, let’s see your creations!
