Branching out on a Sweet Sunday

Karen has another fabulous sketch for us this week (SSSC197) and for my card I inked up one of MFT's new images Trim the Branches Snowman.


The image is stamped onto bella's bestest white card stock and coloured with some copics, but mainly pencils with mineral spirits.  On the ornaments I used either a clear glaze pen or gold gelly roll pen.  I cut the image out using MFT's pierced circle die-namics then layered it on a piece of burgundy card stock cut with a nestie.  The tag behind the dp banner is cut with MFT's fishtail flags layers stax die-namics.  I shaded around the image with bundled sage and antique linen distress inks.  The snow on the ground is done with DecroArt Glistening Snow Writer The DP is Basic Greys Aspen Frost.


For the inside of the card I inked a piece of white cardstock with the antique linen and bundled sage distress inks, added some banners in the dp cut with MFT's fish tail flags layer die-namics.


If you have a chance to play along with the sketch this week remember to link your card on Karen's blog.  Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations.
