Magnolia Vs. Stampavie Sketch -

Sketch time again on Magnolia Vs. Stampavie! And this week is a great one. I turned mine on its side, mainly because I was really wanting to use one of the Sarah Kay Christmas images. This is "Angels Rejoice"

And I love that they aren't perfect Angels... one has dropped their sheet music, one isn't paying attention, but they are all adorable. I colored the image with my Copics and Spica Glitter Pens, then cut with my Nestibilities Oval dies, then cut the larger scalloped oval out of one of the pattern papers from K&Company.

I love the papers from the Christmas collection of K&Company. They are really gorgeous, the colors and the patterns. I cut the side oval from the same as my scallops. I then stitched everything down with a gold thread. For the large circles or buttons on the sketch I found three gold colored jewelry spacers that are really large, and centered them with large gem brads, was a bit tough getting them through the holes in the spacers but I convinced them to go finally. The sentiment is a piece of ribbon that repeats the Celebrate the Season... over and over, I just cut one section from it and attached with mini gold brads. Then I doodled around the image.

I hope you will give the sketch a try this week, go ahead and take a look at the site and see the other DT inspiration at Magnolia Vs. Stampavie, these Ladies always wow me!

Hope you have a great Sunday - spend some time with family then with your stamps and ink!
