Lily Pad Sketch Challenge

Another card for the Lily Pad Sketch Challenge:

Cardstock: Recollections
Stamp: Hero Arts (Trees, Birds & Messages)
Ink: Colorbox Aurora (Colonial Blue)
Miscellaneous: Basic Grey Woolies (Sugar Rush), Sakura White Gel Pen, Washi Tape, Perfect Pearls

I don’t know if you can see it, but I sprayed water mixed with Perfect Pearl on the sentiment.  Just to add some shimmer.  🙂


Christmas card~

There are a couple of challenges going on right now, and I thought I would participate. 🙂

Below is a card for the Lily Pad Sketch Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Song or Film Title Challenge. 🙂

Christmas was on my mind, more specifically, the song: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” popped into my head when I saw this stamp.

Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (I believe the Boyfriend Collection..but not quite sure)
Stamp: Recollections – A Christmas Border set
Ink: Colorbox Aurora (Midnight)
Other: Colored pencils, Glossy Accents, Copic Spica markers, Martha Stewart Glitter, Embroidery Thread, Shrinky Dinks, Fiskars border punch (Threading Waters), pop dots

I colored the birds using colored pencils and added glitter using Copic Spica markers; the stars are made from Shrinky Dinks. 🙂

You can’t really see it, but I added glitter to the star on the ribbon, and put Glossy Accents on top.
