Hi, all, and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! It’s sketch challenge week and I really love this sketch!
I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a Sweet Tooth card stock panel on which I stenciled some Wild Cherry dye ink through Small Chevron Stripes stencil. I didn’t know if it would do OK on regular card stock or not but I tried to keep my water brush on the dry side and it did great! I love the free-hand look I get with this technique. Next, I stamped LJD Nordic Knits on Sweet Tooth card stock with Berrylicious dye ink and cut it out with Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and adhered it. I stamped up another image from LJD Nordic Knits using Grout Gray dye ink and also cut that out with Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and popped it up on foam. I cut the smaller polar bear from BB Cool Day from X-Press It Blending Card and stamped the coordinating image from BB Cool Day with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored it with Copic markers. I popped that up, as well on the circle. I did the same with the mittens image, only I heat embossed a tiny snowflake on each mitten and placed a Copic-colored gem in the center.
Another sentiment from BB Cool Day was stamped on the inside.
