this week's sketch. . . .
at MFT was the perfect sketch challenge for me. Why?? My Big Shot died. Well, let's just say I killed it. It is a long story, but somehow I did manage to put it out of commission. A replacement is on its way, but meanwhile I could not use it to make any cards.
This sketch was easy enough to manually cut the angled shape of the sketch. The SSS sentiment was heat embossed on a Jillibean Soup doily to create a circle shape. The papers and stamped snowflakes are from the SSS January card kit. I stamped a few of the tiny snowflakes on the patterned paper using the white ink pad included in the kit. And, the purple snowflakes were stamped using Brilliance Victorian Violet ink. This is my first attempt to use Karen Dunbrook's technique of using a rubber mallet to selectively or randomly dry emboss a design into cardstock. (upper left corner) What fun! And, my rubber mallet only cost $1.49.
Also sending this to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes!
Word Art Wednesday: anything goes!
Here's to a brand new year - wishing each one of you the best of everything throughout 2015!
