sketchy thursdays, some lace and a door


This week's Sketchy Thursdays is sponsored by Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. The DT was so lucky to each receive one Pixie Cottage stamp to work with for this week's sketch challenge. So fun!


I got the holiday door... which I was happy to get since I'm still scrapping the holidays. I figure, if it is still snowing, the holidays are fair game!


I inked my stamp with Colorbok ink in a rich brown color then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored in the darker areas with American Crafts markers and in the lighter colored areas I used watercolor color pencils. Then, where the snow is, I added glue and glitter for a shimmery, winter effect.



The chipboard ornaments are covered in vintage sheet music paper that I've found in my antiquing searches and love to use.

Thanks for stopping by! Check out Sketchy Thursdays to see the sketch for this week and to play along with us. You can also see a bit more about Michelle and the Pixie Cottage stamps. The DT did a great job with their stamps. (Oh, and GDT Sandra, she did a FABULOUS page using quilling, you just HAVE to see it!!!)
