Deconstructing Sketch Chick!!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Yep! That's me! I still can't quite believe it!

If you missed Jen's announcement on Facebook yesterday, I'm one of the new girls on the Deconstructing Sketch design team! I'm so thrilled to be on the team with Jen and all these talented ladies! I'm especially excited to be stamping along side my dear friend Kadie! This also means that I'll be posting on my blog a bit more regularly too. :)

This week's Deconstructing Sketch #86 is a great one - lots of repeating circles in it. I immediately saw snowflakes, so that's what I went with!

I used some old paper paper from MME and Scenic Route for my base. Each piece was sponged with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then I used snowflake dies from My Favorite Things to cut snowflakes from white glitter paper. Don't you love that snowglobe?! I adore snowglobe....stamps! lol I used the snowglobe stamp and die from There She Goes, then stamped that cute little kid from the Holiday Cheer set. As with all my cards, I colored up the image my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush. I added some glitter to the snow for just a bit more sparkle. :)

Here's a close up of that glitter. The card felt a bit lopsided, so I added some red bakers twine to pull both sides together. The sentiment is from Snowy Days set.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week! I can't wait to see all your creations!
