SSS22 - Winter At Home

Well, another Wednesday is here already and it's time to view my creation for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #22. This challenge incorporated a sketch with a spin. It was a color challenge to use any shade of Red, Black, & Tan.

My card uses a Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set called Winter At Home, which was designed by our ever so talented Chris Dickinson. This is such a great stamp set. I can't wait to get around to using the other three images. So come back soon to see them.
It was colored in using Copic Markers. A little bit of liquid applique was added to two of the stockings.
The paper is from Close to my Heart Silhouette Level II Paper Pack. The card base is Colonial White and the matting is Bamboo.
You can't see it unless you enlarge the photo, but there is red stitching around the edges of the card. I did this by hand with red embroidery floss.
The flowers were white and I colored them with Copics, then pearls added to the centers. The pearls were actually colored with E11 Copic marker to give it more of an off white color. I just thought the pearls were an added touch to go with the polka dot background.
