SSSC84.......Merry Christmas

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This week we have another fabulous sketch drawn by Nancy McKinney:

I changed my card up just a bit, I made it a 5 inch square to accommodate my little Christmas girl. I just love this set, Greeting Card Kids from Stmapin' Up! I used the Jolly Holiday DS paper and pulled my card colors from it, Cherry Cobbler, (love this new core color), old olive and very vanilla. The sweet little old fashion girl pulling her Christmas tree, is stamped with black stazon onto water color paper. I used my aqua painter and ink pads to color her with, I used cherry cobbler ink for all the red and pink you see, just adding more water to lighten it up. I used old olive and early espresso for the tree and sled. I added some red and icicle stickles. I used my blush blossom marker to color her face. I cut the image out with my rectangle nesties and sponged the edges with the nestie still in place with crumb cake ink.

The sentiment comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, I stamped with cherry cobbler onto a scrap of watercolor paper and used the word window punch and sponged this as well. I added some old Olive taffeta ribbon crinkled on the side of the image by using sticky tape. I finished with some antique brads.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
