Sketch Saturday # 174

Happy Saturday my dear friends! Today I have my card for this week’s Sketch Saturday and I was delighted that my order from SCACD came so quickly! I was able to use one the new stamps that I bought.  This is called Princess and is illustrated by the very talented Sylvia Zet.

SCACD Girl and horse copy

***this card is available for purchase now and will be added to my ebay store later this week***

I knew that I wanted to create a Christmas card with this image so I pulled out my new Bo Bunny Father Christmas paper pad and chose my papers and from them I drew my color palette and marker choices. After I colored her with my Copics, I added a slight shadow with a Prisma color pencil (Sand) and added some sponging to the edges of the circle with Distress Ink (Antique Linen)

I did a little machine stitching around the edges of one paper and them added some pretty roses and leaves that were cut out from my paper scraps using a Martha Stewart punch. The ribbon is from Stampin’ Up and I added a Whiff of Joy pearl brad to the center. I think it really adds a fun touch to the ribbon and it ties in with the pearls that I added to the corners of the second paper matted square.

Here is the lovely sketch for you to follow for our Sketch Saturday Challenge. We are being sponsored by The Craft Barn. They are such an amazing company and so generous with us!


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to get a little inky today!

Hugs Jeanette xxo
