Just Christmas and Birthday Challenge

Wow the sketch this week has so many different elements its fab! there is so much you can do with it, and so much more I want to try. The cards I made this week waiver slightly from the sketch due to the scallops! I am not good with scallops! but the main sketch can be seen in both cards. I went with layers on mine. http://www.christmasandbirthdaycards.blogspot.com/

ChristmasI used a pb stamp and coloured it with whispers pens. I added some stickles to his hat and layered him on to some scallops, I added a little stickles to the scalloped edges and snowflakes. I used 3d foam and stuck him to the two swiss dots panels which were also stuck with 3d foam pads, I washed over the blue with a little brown to give it a more dirty look. The other brown panel I ran through the snowflakes embossing folder. I tore the darker brown and edged the top with a line of pen dots and the bottom a line of stickles. I really like this one!

Birthday

I used one of my fave stamps on this one. I coloured him with whispers pens and layered him onto some torn black card I then 3d foamed this onto the 2 green panels which were also attached with 3d foam.I cut a sizzix frame a few times and took the scallops from it to add to the main torn black card, I dont know if it works yet. The strip is from the all dressed up stack and I added a couple of primas.

I think I will deffo be playing with this sketch over the coming weeks.
