Sketch Saturday - Sketch # 13

This is the sketch that Jo has made for this week's challenge on the Sketch Saturday Challenge blog.


And here are my two cards using the sketch, one for Christmas and the other just a fun one.

















For this one I have used a House Mouse image (I was sent this image, sorry can't remember who!) and coloured it in with promarkers and a little dab of diamond stickles on the lights. I've layered up the image and card with papers from Paper Adventure. For the embellies I have used some sheer red ribbon and two little Christmas bells.

















For my second card I have made a more masculine card. I kept it simple because I think the stamp is so sweet and didn't want to "overload" it. The stamp is from Alota and is called Baseball Bugs. This time I stamped it out with Stazon but then clear embossed it to make the black parts of the bug stand out. I then coloured them in with promarkers. To make the background I sponged green and blue chalk inks over the card. The paper is from Scenic Route and was a double sided paper. I then just added some brads to finnish it off.

Stamps: Alota & House Mouse
Papers:- Paper Adventure & Scenic Route
