Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Week week 10
Once again, Maria has given us a fabulous sketch to work with this week. You'll see it just below and noticed that I played with it a wee bit. I found the Ribbon to be a bit top heavy, so I flipped it to have the ribbon on the bottom and I moved the brads to the other side.
Like Lovely as a tree, this image to me, is rather timeless. It is an image that is from the Stamp Barn in Ottawa Ontario. I coloured it in with my Copic Markers. I would list all the colours for you, but I find I just use so many on each image, sometimes up to three colours in the same value for shading, so I must say I am rather lazy about listing them. Anyway, I used my white gel pen to create a little snow................EWWWW did I say SNOW???? Please, no more snow..... I am keeping my fingers crossed that we don't get anymore anytime soon.......at least not until next winter! I cuttlebugged the soft sky background layer with a snowflake template and used Night of Navy and Purely Pomegranite as complimentary colours!
I initially had no sentiment on the card as I wanted the focal point to be the image, but it seemed a little bare, so I added a SU Rub on directly onto the Pomegranite Ribbon. I wasn't sure how it would adhere, but I must say that I find that SU Rubons are just like butter and probably one of the best rubons that I have ever used.
Here's the sketch if you want to play along! Also, don't forget to follow the Link to Christmas Stamping to see all of the other faboo designs!!!
