Sketch Saturday #423



Good morning sketch fans!  Today is the 5th Saturday of the month so that means you can pick any sketch from the Sketch Saturday Archive.  Don't you just love having so many choices?  I know I do!

I went with Sketch #216, and changed the format from square to rectangle.  (I've had this image colored and on standby; this sketch was the perfect opportunity to use it!)  Here's the sketch:


The image is colored with pencils and I've added lots of glitter...my favorite embellishment!  The red panel is embossed; the dots remind me of a blizzard.  The patterned paper is pearlized and so beautiful in real life.  I've added a smattering of sparkly snowflakes embellished with brads/mini brads, along with some tiny foil snowflakes.  (The snowflakes dies are from Lawn Fawn; I love the mini size!)  Here's a close-up:

Don't Worry Be Hippie!



Good morning!  I have a card to share using one of Faith's newer Birdbrains...isn't she groovy?  I've used one of my favorite color palettes...yellow and pink with a bit of blue, green, and orange added to coordinate with the patterned paper.  The image is colored with pencils and I've added some glitter "shadow" to her eyelids.  The sketch is an old one from Paper Craft Crew; I've done some simple layering and added buttons/floss for embellishing.  Here's a close-up:
