Sweet Stop Sketch
The challenge on Sweet Stop this week has a spin; it must be a Christmas card made with the sketch. I am really having a hard time getting my brain to work in Christmas card mode. Last week's Ways to Use challenge on SCS also was a Christmas theme, so here is my entry for that as well. I chose part of SNS set Christmas Cheer designed by Korin Sutherland. I stamped the stocking image on watercolor paper and colored the ball, kitty and gift but pieced the stocking in SU patterned paper. I used Stickles in Gold for the gift ribbon and Frosted Lace for the stocking edging, also white gel pen for stiching. The card stock is SU Riding Hood Red, Wassail by Basic Grey which I also used in combination with the SU dsp to make paper ribbon for trim. I mounted the cut out image with dimensionals, sponged the Whisper White embossed Swiss Dots (CB folder) with R.H. Red and scalloped the with the SU lace punch, added Goldenberry Dew Drops (Robins Nest) on the bottom and a medallion sticker I bought at Michaels.
