From The Heart Stamps Sketch #127 – Twist: Lots of White-use embellishments for color

Hello friends!  Happy Monday!  I’m here with sketch #127 at From The Heart Stamps.  These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image and the sketch.  The rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to use a mostly white card and add embellishments for color.

I used only the sketch this week.  My image is a happy snowman called, “Catching Flakes” which I colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers.  I created the background using the My Favorite Things “Candy Stripe” builder background.  I finished off with the button embellishments and some diamond stickles for sparkle.

Sure hope you’ll join us for Sketch #127 at From The Heart Stamps this week.  Also, don’t forget to stop by and join the FTHS Facebook group.  Happy Monday!!

    • LUCK!!!! Seriously, it’s a challenge. I just try to stay away from the edges. I’ve heard of others who heat set the image by running an embossing pen over the edges and heat setting. But for me, it’s just being super careful.
