Nice List Sketch

This week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog we have a sketch by Design Team member (and papercrafting superhero)...Becca Feeken!  It's such a unique one that was so much fun to use!


I sat and thought about the sets that I have with cute circular images and Around Christmastime immediately popped into my head...those snowflakes!  Such gorgeous images.  I stamped them with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white.  This paper was originally Vintage Cream but I sponged and sponged with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress inks until I got a decidedly "gingerbread" color :)


I also used the sweet Santa label from the set!  I cut out the inner circle with a nestie and layered it over the larger medallion shape, also cut out with a nestie.


The bottom was stamped with patterns from Nordic Winter and a sentiment from Nutcracker Sweet.  Got out my rusty jingle bells, so that must mean that Christmas is not far away!

Upload your creation with this beautiful sketch HERE by next Friday, October 19th.  The rules have changed a bit, in that participants can use images from any companies to play along; however, only the players that include at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on their project will be eligible for the prize of a stamp set of choice.

DON'T FORGET!  The Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party will take place this Wednesday, October 17th!  The theme this month is to make a card using any shades of purple, orange, and black (paired with any neutrals such as cream, white, grey, and kraft).  You are NOT limited to Halloween...you can create any type of card or project with the colors!  All of the details can be found in Claire's post HERE.

This is the first set I thought of when I saw the sketch too! I really like your take - the colours are so warm. And I like the Ho, Ho, Ho sentiment.
