Sugar-Coated Sketch


Another one from me at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog this week!  Ohhh, isn't it a tricky one?  Almost tricked myself once I went to use it, hee! 

Those little crisscrossing flaps made me think of wrapping up in something warm and fuzzy, and so that's how this card started...


Used one of my favorite stamps of all times from Waltzingmouse Stamps...the sweater pattern from Faux Fun!  When I first got the set, I think that I used it on everything that I made for a good 3 weeks :)  Decided to keep with a winter theme.  Sewing Box-Christmas called me last week.  It said it was getting very upset that I kept showcasing Sewing Box-Hugs, and said it was high time that I got it out again.  It didn't care that it was August!!  The candy cane is positively sugar-coated with coarse glitter from Martha Stewart, you should see it sparkle!


I KNOW that you are all up to this sketch challenge!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, August 12th.  Be sure to use at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project so that you are eligible to be the randomly-selected player to win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  sentiment and candy cane from Sewing Box-Christmas, sweater pattern from Faux Fun, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream and Pure Poppy
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, red Copic markers, Fresh Ink in Basil, Tim Holtz Distress ink in Antique Linen
Other:  Martha Stewart coarse glitter (clear), twine, buttons, Tiny Tags die from Papertrey ink, and red jingle bells!

You are a TRIXY! This was a tough design for me! I don't know how you did that patterened paper - but it is stamped PERFECTLY! Love the sugary sparkle on that candy cane! Great XMAS card!
