Jolly Old Fellow!

Monday, 19 August 2013

Hi everyone!

Thank you to everyone who has entered my blog candy so far and for all the lovely comments about where I live.  I must admit to not appreciating it for most of my life but I've really come to see it's beauty as I've gotten older.  If you haven't seen my candy click here to check it out!

We have a new challenge for you today from Seems A Little Sketchy and our fab sponsor for this fortnight is Squigglefly!

 and they're offering 3 digi's to one lucky winner!

Here's our sketch for challenge 46

And here's what I did with an image kindly given by our sponsor

This image is called Better Not Pout Santa and I coloured him with the following copics:  Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hat & berries: R39,37,29. Holly leaves: YG97,95,93. Beard: E40,30. I used a Snow Marker on the furry parts of his hat and puffed it up with my heat gun.

The papers I've used are the North Country Collection by Prima.  I used a Joy Crafts Winter Wishes border die on kraft card that I dry brushed with some white acrylic paint.  The kraft card was a little thick for the die to cut the whole way through so I thinned it out a bit by tearing away a few layers of the card.  The holly is from an X-cut punch.  The bells, ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

The sketch was used again on the inside of my card and the sentiment is an old one by Anita's.

So I hope you'll join us with this fab sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy - go check out what the rest of the DT have done!
