Hanna sketch challenge


The last challenge at the Hanna party was a sketch challenge. I used the tree from the Tis the Season set. I love Hanna and this tree together with her decorating the tree, but the stamps work well alone for other types of cards, too. I colored the tree with copic markers. I added liquid applique and prisma glitter to the snow around the tree and on the tree and then heated to make it puffy, sparkly snow. I added stickles to the snowflakes to make them sparkly. I inked the edges of the papers. I stitched around all the edges except the image, but it is hard to see in the photo on the snowflake paper. The sentiment is from Papertrey.

Recipe:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Stamps: Tis the Season (Hanna Stamps), Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Liquid Applique, Prisma Glitter, CTMH distressing ink, Janome Sewing Machine, Stickles, Copic Markers

I like the color combo it makes the tree pops out.

Thanks for sharing!

Love that Basic Grey paper and you're right that the tree works great by itself. Beautiful colouring and shading - especially on the tree. This is so pretty Niki!

Love the distressing look on this card Niki. The glitter makes the design "bling!"

I really like this one. I like the tree by itself and really does make the stamps more versatile. The sparkle and puffiness on the tree are fantastic.
