Nothing like cutting a deadline close is there? I am loving the sketch challenges at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I have almost left getting my card posted until too late as the challenge closes in a little less than 7 hours. This is the lovely sketch for this week....I am getting such a wonderful stash of sketches in my file.
I am also going to enter this card at Our Creative Corner this week where it is Au Naturel with a Twist.
They are asking for all neutrals (and gold/silver or metallics). The main project must use only pale neutrals (ivory, white, beige, tan, gray) with darker neutrals (dark gray, brown, black) as accents only. The twist is to include lace and buttons. Doesn't that sound like fun?
And to mix it up even more, I decided to make a Christmas card. I am not getting as many in as I would like but every one will be one less I am stressing over at the holidays. When I saw the natural palette, I immediately thought about my music stamp by Just for Fun stamps and the santa by Rubber Stampede.
I offstamped once before stamping the music paper with Tim Holtz distress ink, the santa was stamped with Versamark and gold embossing powder. I also decided to use another one of my Just For Fun stamps...the tree to stamp on the layer behind my santa while using more of the distress ink to sponge around my layers. My lace is a scrap piece and is layered with holiday ribbon from Walmart.
Stop by these blogs and play along if you can....I appreciate your stopping in to visit.
