My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Christmas Candle - SSS-24



Here is a sneak peek of Thursday's New Digi Release. It's called Christmas Candle.  I couldn't wait to put this on paper.It's such a gorgeous image.  The image was created by Leah Cornelius, who is one of the Sr. DT's at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
This digi will be available for sale on Thursday over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

I made this for the Saturday Sketch Challenge over at the Sweet Stop.

You can't appreciate all the dimension and sparkle on this card. I colored the image with Copic Markers, then went over certain areas with Spica glitter pens. The candle and poinsettia is layered for a 3D affect.

The paper is a retired paper pack from Close to my Heart. I should have bought several packs of this before it retired because I really like it.

The stitching was done by hand with matching embroidery floss.
 The half pearls were colored to match with Copic markers.
