This is my first post for today (my second, for the August release from NND will be up shortly following). After an amazing week of inspiration and celebration from Freshly Made Sketches, we are on our way to the next 300 sketches this week. The sketch hostess is our lovely friend Jen Brum and she has a unique angled sketch for us this week. I’m in love!!
I chose to make another Christmas card since I’m starting to get the holiday card making buzz. What better image than this beautiful flower from the Poinsettia stamp by Simon Says Stamp? I’m taking another Copic coloring class this Friday (YAY!!!) and I thought I should probably put in a little practice before going. So out came my reds and off to coloring I went. I added in some leaves from the set for another pop of color and then made the rest using Vanilla and Black. Yes, Vanilla. Because Stampin’ Up has a new Thick Vanilla card stock that is amazing!!!! And it works beautifully for Copic coloring!! I chose this sentiment from Concord and 9th since I thought it was a nice fit on the angle and then added some sequins in black. This patterned paper is retired from Stampin’ Up (I have huge stash of black and vanilla papers that I think will finally get the love they deserve!).
I hope you have a great time with this sketch! The team has provided their always spectacular inspiration so check out their work! Thanks so much for stopping in. So glad to see you!
