I love when the Fungeon is filled with new stamp sets and new products – it’s like Christmas every day and all year-long. OK, so the Fungeon is exactly FILLED with new stuff, but there’s definitely some new things down there. We were able to order select items from the Holiday Catalog while at Convention. I combined two of these sets to complete this week’s sketch challenge from The Pals Paper Arts. Here’s my card:
- What’s in a Sketch? Color challenges are pretty specific (not a lot of room for substitution), but sketch challenges are inspiration as far as I see it. While I don’t have three squares on my card, you can definitely see the three shapes that run corner-to-corner. In my opinion, there’s room to interpret a sketch and play around with the final project.
- Added Filigree. I love the ornamental lines in the Cheerful Christmas sentiment and wanted to add a similar filigree to the top left and bottom right. My new Wintertime stamp set has a squiggly filigree that would fit in those corners nicely, so…and I wasn’t even concerned about masking the rest of the sentiment because it all fits nicely beneath the Cherry Cobbler oval.
- A Little Bling. I love the small, random dots that are built into this sentiment. Rather than letting them stay flat, I decided to step it up a bit by adding some pearls. I colored a variety of pearls with pens from my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Blendabilities. Using Blendabilities on embellishments can wear down the tip of the marker, so it’s good to have an extra set of Blendabilities on hand – one for coloring on paper and one for coloring embellishments.
