Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 109 - Sketch

Hey Everyone

Can you believe it's December already!!!!!   Three weeks to Christmas - loads of presents still to buy - lots of cards still to make!!!! OMG!!!  Anyone would think I'm starting to panic!

Without further ado this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss is a sketch.  For the sake of always repeating myself, I so love working with sketches and this week's wonderful sponsor is the fantastic Joanna Sheen.

I love Joanna's on line shop - she has loads and loads of goodies to choose from at really competitive prices and then she charges absolutely nothing for postage - we love you Joanna!

Oh I nearly forgot - thank you for all your amazing creations for last week's challenge - there was sparkle just everywhere.

So here is the sketch that we would like you to follow:

Simple eh!  Don't forget you can mirror it, turn it upside down and make some slight alterations to it; as long as we can see that you've tried to follow the sketch you're in with a chance to win.  Go and see what the wonderful DT ladies have created to inspire you - they are just fabulous.

Here is the card I made:

I just love Lili of the Valley stamps - they are just so perfect.

Here is a close-up of the stamp:

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Lili of the Valley 'O Christmas Tree"
Papers:  My Minds Eye "Lost & Found Christmas"
Charm & Pearls:  The Hobby House

I have coloured the image with Copics:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000

Coat:  R39 R29 R27 R24
Boots:  E37 E35 E33
Bow & Holly:  R29 R27 R24 YG67 YG63

Coat & Hat:  E29 E27 E25
Trousers:  E43 E42
Gloves & Scarf:  R29 R27 R24

Tree:  E17 E15 G28 YG67 YG63
Star:  YR24 YR23 YR21
Stool:  E29 E27 E25

I have edged everything with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and everything has been given a good coating of Glamour Dust except for the flowers where I have edged them with "Stardust" Stickles to give them a frosty, blingy look.

Finally, as normal I have carried the layout through to the inside of the card:

So that's it from me - I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see all your wonderful creations across at Totally Gorjuss.

See ya - be safe.
