Sketch Challenge

There's a sketch challenge over at the Simon Says Flickr Group.

Sketch For SSS Flickr Challenge 8


And here's my take.

SSS Challenge #8 - Sketch

I haven't used Gilding Flakes (metal leaf) in a while so I pulled some out of my stash and used it on the Christmas tree and on the thin strip of paper.  I think that little tree is so cute dressed up in metallics.

Camouflaged Die Cut

The challenge at Papertrey Ink this week is to use a camouflaged die cut.  Laura Bassen has a video and great card showing the technique.

Sue McRae PTI Camouflage Challenge

I started by inking up my panel with Distress Ink in Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Squeezed Lemonade and then spritzing it a few times with Perfect Pearls.  The leaf was die cut once out of the panel and 4 times out of white card stock and adhered together for one thick piece that was fitted back into the negative space.

I think my leaf piece is a bit too camouflaged. I should have stopped my inking sooner so that the leaf would have had some white showing.  Perhaps a redo is in order!

12 Tags With a Feminine Twist

I'm back with another tag for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  This tag is inspired by Sandy Allnock's tag from day 9 here.

12 Tags with a Feminine Twist

I liked Sandy's sweet winter scene and her colour combo of blue and pink.  I used Distress Paint for my background and added tiny white stars.  The deer and trees are from Impression Obsession and for some sparkle I added Stardust Stickles to the snowy hill.

Ellen Hutson 12 Tags

I have a tag today for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist Challenge.  My tag was inspired by Julie Ebersole's day 1 tag here.

Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas


I was inspired by Julie's ombre background, using a wreath and adding touches of gold.  I die cut a WPlus9 wreath in white and gold, added texture to the white piece with an embossing folder and offset the gold wreath behind the white one.  The background was done with Distress Paint and I added a few (too many) gold stars.
