Well, I don’t think there’s much hope for a white Christmas here in Naples, Florida, so I’ll be creating lots of white Christmases on paper. I hope that’s a word. Spell check didn’t red flag it!
Rita Wright has designed the BEST sketch for our challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week. Rita has amazing talent, fresh ideas and is a master of new techniques. This sketch is the epitome of fresh! I chose to ink up two stamp sets that I haven’t played with yet: White Christmas and Endless Wishes.
This is a pretty easy sketch to work with, that is IF you can make a decision. I must have cut 20 pieces of cardstock and DSP trying to find the right patterns and textures to use. I finally settled for a pattern from the All Is Calm DSP collection and a piece of Pool Party embossed with the Stylish Stripes folder. The background piece of Lost Lagoon was embossed with the Decorative Dots folder.
The trees were embossed with White and the deer with Early Espresso Embossing Powders, and the deer was colored with a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker. Both stamps are from the White Christmas stamp set. The ‘ground’ was filled in with a White Gel Pen, and then Dazzling Details gave it a snowy scene effect.
The sentiment and snowflake stamp are from Endless Wishes, and made it easy to create a small round sentiment. It was cut with the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and adhered to a piece of Silver Foil Paper cut with the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.
And here’s Rita’s sketch:
