Christmas In July Day 2 – Sketch

Time for the second of the fun Christmas in July challenges at Catch the Bug. Today  is a sketch for you to try.




Materials used:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Ava and Deacon Christmas – HoHo
acrylic greeting stamp
X-Press It card
designer paper
silver mirri card
pearlised card
circle die
blue buttons
blue ribbon
white fun flock
Copic pens

Print image on X-Press It card, colour with Copics and trim to size. Use a glue pen to add a glittery border and fun flock to the children’s hadt. Matt onto silver mirri card.

Make an A5 card base from pearlised card. Cut a piece of designer paper larger than the matted image and attach to the middle of the card base.

Add the matted image with the blue ribbon and attach the buttons.

Stamp the greeting with black ink and cut with a circle die. Run a black pen carefully around the edge and colour the stars with a gold pen. Attach to card with foam pads.

I cannot recall if I have said before but sketches are my least favourite challenges! So if I am brave enough to give it a go I think you could too. Look on the Catch the Bug Blog for all the information about the challenges for the week and details of the wonderful prizes on offer. Hope to see you there.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
