December Sketches at SSW 2

Good day

Kathie have created 2 new sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I just had a fun time creating with them too. For the first one I created a birthday card for a friend of mine who celebrate her birthday on the 28th of December. She just love the soft teal colour. I used a stamp that I have bought in September and a few different dies. Added 2 dragonfly diecuts with some pearls as finishing touch.

Challenges I'm joining:
Crafter's cafe - Use dies and or punches
Crafty Calendar - Anything goes

Image from Sheepski Design called Garden Party

For the second one I took especially inspiration from the mood board of Colourful options, since white on white is just one of my all time favourite challenges, though today I played with white on white with a dash of colour. Since purple is my colour choice for this Christmas I used it on the gnomes' hats - image from Sheepski design called garden party. I'm a bit disappointed since the clear emboss pen did not change colour with the heat embossing on the brim of the hats. I think I used a different emboss powder in the past. I added some pearl accent on the beards. For the holly leaves, in the corner, I used a Fiskar emboss corner template. Added an Afrikaans peel-off sticker for the sentiment and some pearls. 

Challenges I'm joining:
2 Sisters on the blog #69 - Christmas with holly leaves
Allsorts #705 - Christmas
Colourful options - Inspiration board
Creative Knockouts #481 - Winter wonderland
Sheepski design challenge #69 - This is the season

Hope you will come and join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
Hugs from Africa!
