At Paper Craft Planet's Alota Rubber Stamp Group we are having a sketch challenge - Shary one of the Alota DT, created the sketch for our first challenge. Love stair stepped bands.
For my card I got to use a bunch of new things! Ok, first I was excited to use some new card stock I got at my LSS... I love the Bazzill Swiss dots! Oh my I saw them online, and couldn't hardly wait for Susan at the Scrapbook Haus to get them in! Cute huh? I got a bunch of colors so you will see this a lot in the future.
Then I was able to use some of the brand new stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps. First I used the "Winter Home" as my background, then from the "Merry Christmas Set" I used this adorable little guy... love how he is dragging the tree...
I colored them all with my Copics, then doodled the edges with my Multi-liner and high lighted with white gel pen. I used puffy paint to create the snow on the roof, ground and tree, and my Glazed Dimensions for the water, it really shines in person, and looks wet. The sentiment is also brand new from Alota and is two stamps for one called "Be Good, Snow Much" Cute huh?
My bands are from scraps, so I don't know the maker, sorry - I found three really large brown brads for my dots at the top right corner, I high lighted them with the gel pen, never done that before didn't know if it would stay, but it dried and looks neat. I then stitched all the edges.
It is a great sketch I do hope you will find a few moments in all of the hustle and bustle to join in - there are a couple of really great Valentine stamps up for the prize!
Well Hubby is off today - So don't have a clue what we will be doing. Hope you have a great Thursday planned - Oh and thank you all for the well wishes for my back - it is better today... each day a little bit right? Still moving slow, but moving is an improvement!
