Sketch Saturday #18




I've made this card for the Sketch Saturday challenge. I haven't strictly followed the sketch but I think it's close enough.
The stamp is an old Penny Black stamp which I stamped twice in Versafine Smokey Grey and watercoloured. I cut out the snowmen line up and layered on to the first image. The dark blue backing card is from a DCWV pad and the spotty glitter card is from stash. I stamped and heat embossed the Stamps Away sentiment circle in blue, which I then cut out with a punch and used a nestability die for the scalloped circle behind. Added the strip of white glitter card and again the dark blue DCWV card, punched out some silver snowflakes, and added glitter glue to finish - of course.

What a great card, Louise. It just goes to show what you can make from old stamps given a new twist.
