Sketch Challenge #152
I am in the Christmas mode this whole December, so my cards will probably be about spreading holiday cheer with glitz and sparkle etc.,etc.,etc. This is the most recent stamp set purchased three weeks ago and is finally out of the box. Dashing paper sets this card in the mood and that is where my whole choice of color scheme is based on-Old Olive, River Rock and Real Red. So you can't really go wrong with that. I used White Craft for the Old Olive background and stamped snowflakes that came with this set. The trees and snowman is colored with Aqua Painter. I added Crystal Effects for the star (last time I used stickles with colored ink, it tends to bleed ). I did used Stickles for the tree and for the snow effect. I wanted to incorporate the North Pole saying, so I took this stamp from the Perfect Presenation set, and did some paper piercing in the circle.
