Sketch Saturday!!! Sketch 14


You probably already know but still, it's such big new for me that it should be officially posted on this blog.... I was chosen to be in the Design Team of Sketch Saturday!!!

I'm so proud an honoured to be in this amazingly talented team. I mean, have you seen the cards the other members have already made from sketch number 14 by Jo? I didn't have time to finish my card before this evening but I had seen some of the cards of my fellow DT members and I tell you... it made me slightly nervous. There are creations that use techniques that I have never even seen! Girls, I am very honoured to have the chance to be working with you!

So... without further ado, here is my card using this great sketch Jo gave us. I hope you like it!!

Sketch 14

Materials used:
Image from Magnolia
Snowflakes on sentiments and on paper behind image are from
Fancy Pants Blissful Season set
Design Papers My Minds Eye Frost Signature Christmas Collection
Gelly Roll pens by Sakura
DewDrop Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink
Stampendous Fun Flock (for snow on bench)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen (I stamped the Fun Flock with this to get dimension in the snow)
Derwent Watercolour Pencils
Joy Crafts Decorative Pearls
Font used: LD Antique Elegance
Cardstock from collection

The sentiments read "Wij wensen jullie hele fijne kerstdagen en een gezond, gelukkig, warm en liefdevol 2009 toe", Dutch for "We wish you a merry christmas and a healthy, happy, warm and loving 2009". I printed the text in circles using Paint Shop Pro 8, if anybody wants to know how to do that, give a sign and I'll make a tuturial. The snow on the bench was first stamped, then cut out, then put through my Xyron 150, flocked, extra coated with Tacky Glue, reflocked and then stamped with Distress Ink.
