Freshly Made Sketches #115

Man, I am on a roll! I don't think I have ever had the time to post this many projects at one time ever! I am so blessed to be able to have some extra time this week to myself to just sit down, relax, and finally create!

This card is for the Freshly Made Sketches #115 challenge. This is the first time I am joining one of the FMS challenges, I see their challenges all the time but have never participated in one! I love these sketch challenges though, it is so nice to have someone else decide how they want you to make the layout of your project!

I used a digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles, love all their Christmas images, they are adorable! I colored in my image with some Prismacolor markers: Crimson Red, Dark Brown, Blush Pink, Process Red, Apple Green, Dark Olive Green, Light Peach, and Raspberry. I sure do love my Prismacolor markers, although I do hope to one day invest in some copic markers. I have had my Prismacolor Markers for over 5 years now and they still work like a charm. The only one that is just now starting to run out is the Crimson red. I love the way these markers blend together to create a nice, clean colored look.

My sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Boutique Borders: Christmas Stamp set. I had a left over snowflake cut out from PTI's Fancy Snowflakes Die set, so I glittered that up and placed it behind my digital stamp. I embossed my red panel with clear embossing powder after stamping it with Hero Arts Snowflakes and Edges Cling stamp. The only thing I would change on the card is the red panel, I think it is too much red against all the red in my digital image, but I still like the card anyway.

Thanks for stopping by again, bye!
