Friday Sketchers Challenge

Happy Friday! This is the last day of school before my boys start their March break….which translates to….this is the last day I will have very much time for blogging and/or playing in my craft room! LOL! Of course, I am sooo happy to have them with me and we have lots of things planned….with skiing being at the top of the list.

This week it is Claudia’s turn to create a sketch and like all her sketches …it is perfectly balanced and a joy to play with!

I used one of the whimsical new gnome stamps that will be released March 1st by Whiff of Joy stamps. If you missed my last few postings, scroll down after this one and you will see some of the other gorgeous images that will be released at the same time.

I have colored this sweet little gnome with Twinkling H20s. It has been such a long time since I have done any water-coloring and I re-discovered how much I love it! I was happy that I was able to capture a little bit of the shimmer that the H20s give! So pretty.

The sentiment on the front and the one on the inside are from Verve Stamps.

The patterned paper is from Whiff of Joy as is the metal die that I used for the sweet heart banner.

Here are some links for you. The image will be available at Whiff of Joy as of March 1st.

Twinkling H20s used:

almond beige, bolivian blue, chestnut brown, forest green, hot cinnamon, bashful blue

Be sure to check out all the samples that my fellow DT sisters have created for your inspiration. We have been joined by the wonderful Rach! Yippee! I am so happy she is on our team!
