FEELING SKETCHY #94 & THE MIXED MEDIA CARD #1 CHALLENGES
Since it is now well & truly July...& Since Christmas in July is a long held Aussie tradition....you know what I'm gonna say, don't you? YUP! Chrissy cards;)
FEELING SKETCHY #94. The sketch:
Now, I started with the idea of dragging out my die cuts that I RARELY use....someone else I've recently visited was doing just that...sorry, I can't remember who, or I'd link you:( Aaaaanyways....the idea sort of evolved from this sketch to this:
That bg was white card stock. I swear it was! I added 2 sets of different stamps, then gessoed it all...then added some White Out [Liquitex] & Glimmer Glaze droplets. Rather neat effect, I think:)
And yes, the 'Christmas Wishes' sentiment is FUSSY CUT. Ugghhh! You can see all the die cut layers here...
Tell me you can still see the basis of the sketch? Even if you can't, I'm happy for you to say you can *winks*!!!!
Meanwhile, there's a NEW SKETCH BLOG IN TOWN.......
Here's their criteria:
My 'touches of nature' include the molding pasted glittered up flower stencil on the edges & the deer:
I got that bit of blue, because I'm a lazy scrapper, & when I squeezed out the modeling paste, I hadn't cleaned off the blue paint from another project.....so it accidentally got on some...so I thought, hey, it looks OK...so added a bit more:)
I've also stamped the 'December' stamp & that background one with the writing lines in the background. And OF COURSE, that's white nail polish on my wooden stars:):)
Sooooo...shall I ask 'the' question? Have you started YOUR cards? I noticed Scrapbooking Memories is asking for Christmas submissions......now THERE'S a scary thought for you:):)!!!!!
On that note - happy scrapping!
NB: I'm still using up the fabulous giveaway kit I got from SCRAPTASTIC!!!!
