Sketch Saturday

There's a great sketch on Sketch Saturday this week.





And here's my take on the sketch , I've turned it 90 degrees because my main image is quite big.


Sorry I've taken it at a weird angle for some reason!! Anyway I've used Stampin Up designer papers and two Alota stamps. The main image is an Alota stamp called Bugs Wrapping Gifts and the 3 circles , I have taken components from another Alota stamp called Noel Bugs. You'll probably see the whole stamp on my blog pretty soon. They've both been coloured with promarkers and a dab of diamond stickles for their wings. I have then just layered them onto cs using shapes cut from my Cricut. Then I've just added some ribbon and 3 brads.

Stamps:- Alota stamps
Papers:- Stampin Up designer papers - Dashing
Layered shapes:- Cricut cartridge - Plantin Schoolbook
