Woodware - Whimsical Bloom

 Kim is here with a lovely floral take on the sketch
Kim has used the Clear Magic Whimsical Flower - Sally Anne designed by Jane Gill.
 
Kim has used a piece of paper from her vast stash of hand made background papers this one has made using 'Bleeding Art Tissue' technique. next Kim has stamped with a black pigment ink and embossed with clear powder.
To add highlights Kim has painted with water to remove some of the colour, have some kitchen towel at hand to soak up the wet ink.

Then to make parts extra white Kim got out her bleach, and painted with it. Remember to use the very cheap thin bleach for this.  A touch of sparkle comes from the Sakura Gelli Roll Clear Stardust pen.
The flags have been made using the great Dreamweaver Dual Alphabet die set.
A great take on the sketch

Woodware - Santa's Silly Jumper

Today for our sketch we have a very clever card from Crafty Debs
debs
Crafty Debs has used Santa's Silly Jumper a Clear magic stamp from the Francoise Collection. Francoise has been doing a bit of crocheting so it think that must have been her source of inspiration!
debs1
I love the stamp, but I love Debs choice of it for the sketch, it is perfect. Those cute little tabs have all been cut with a wobbly edge from the Santa image!
debs2
as for Santa he has been stamped in black and embossed with detail clear powder then coloured with Sakura Glaze Pens.  With added sparkle coming from Silver and Stardust Stickles.
The background papers are from the 6 X 6 Perfect Prints paper pads Fruit Stars & Bold Stars.
56
and here is a reminder of the sketch.

Woodware - The Holly and the Ivy

Here we have another take on this sketch
21
a very simple card
17
This Clear Magic stamp designed by Francoise is new this year The Holly & the Ivy Tag and has been coloured with brush pens, (takes quite some time) ink the stamp first with a Watermark pad so that is stays wet longer. I have layered it on to some dark green card.
19
I added the ribbon through the punched hole, and threaded on a bead to hold it without tying
18
I layered my tag on to paper from the 6 x 6 Perfect Prints Best Gifts of All pad.
20
For my flag bits at the bottom I wanted to use holly and this is a lovely holly stamp from a very very old set also designed by Francoise Wired For Christmas
22
Then I added my holly which I have embossed with a mix of copper and Seasonings one of the fantastic Stampendous Frantage powders.
56
and to finish a reminder of the sketch

Woodware - Rudolf by Jane Gill

Jane the Flower Girl is centre stage today with her take on this sketch
jane
Jane has used Rudolf one of her Clear Magic stamps from 2015.
jane1
Jane has used the Pointillist technique to colour him in. One of her favourites, and really very effective. Jane has used 4 shades of brown pen use the lightest colour first and colour Rudolf all over. Then just add lots of dots in the darker shades. Jane has then added a grey line under Rudolf's chin to create a shadow effect and making him dimensional.
jane2
Jane has used die cut letters to make the flags at the bottom of the sketch. The Dreamwever Dual Alphabet dies would be perfect for this. Jane has cut rectangles in different sizes to match the letters and then layered them on some red card.
56
This is a great card from Jane the Flower Girl and a great take on the sketch.

Woodware - Snowman Bauble


10
Meet the Large Snowman Bauble from the Francoise Collection.
11
I have just stamped him in black and cut him at a slightly jaunty angle. He has been layer on some of the Amethyst Recycled Card.
13
I stamped twice more and cut out the scarf,  the carrot nose and the hat. I have coloured with Sakura Koi Brush Pens.
15
I punched out the snowflakes and covered them with Stickles, and I then used Stickles as the glue, the fine nib makes it easy to apply and if it squeezes out from underneath it is pretty!
12
I punched the green tag and the mini heart and star, I coloured the card before punching so that it was the same colour as the rest of the card.
14
I punched the Contemporary Tartan tags and attached them so they look as if they are swinging.
This is the sketch that was the inspiration.
