Sweet Sunday 179

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC179) which was designed by Vicki!

For my card I decided to get a Christmas card done - one of 100!  I inked up Stamping Bella's Minty Coffee


The image is stamped with versafine black ink onto water colour paper and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then coloured the image with distress markers and tombow markers.  I added some white glaze on the candy cane to give it some shine.  The shading under the cup was done with pencils and gambol.  The dp is basic grey's Aspen Frost.  For the little banners I used MFT's fishtail staxs die-namics


Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers and our Guest Designers blog and if you play along with us this week remember to link your card to Karen's blog for a chance to be a Sweet Sunday Guest Stamper.
Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great Sunday

This is stunning! I love the soft, muted colors and the velvet ribbon. Thank you for the inspiration AND motivation to get started on Christmas cards. I was so behind I didn't mail any out this year :(!
