Wintry Sketch

Such a perfect mix;  Flourishes Challenge #247, Winter Scenes, this fabulous Sketch from Heather over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog, and the Great Impressions November Challenge, Holiday Card Or Tag.


And here is what I have created.

I used the gorgeous Partridge in a Pear Tree image from the Holiday Topiaries set available at Flourishes.  This image was really fun to color, a little Christmas music in the background to set the mood, Fa La La La La.  The designer papers are Holly Jolly Christmas from Echo Park (another pad I am running low on).  Colored with Copic Markers, a couple of eyelets, and some chunky white glitter, topped with a bit of extra fine glitter to give the 'snow' more of a pretty sparkle.

Still a wee bit of time left in all Challenges, check them out, you'll be glad you did!

Enjoy~~

  1. Love your tree! All of the stamps that I have, and I don't have a real looking Christmas tree. I wish we lived coser, so we could swap sets. Hmmm! How close would we need to be to do that! Well, I will just have to be jealous then!
    Great papers and glitter too. Fa la la la la la!

  10. Donna, this is fabulous! Beautiful coloring, and the glittery ground is wonderful. I especially like your take on the sketch. You followed it almost exactly, but adding the diagonal strips of ribbon totally made it sing, and totally made it yours!
