Filled With Merry - SFYTT
Today I'm having another go at the November Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT), sponsored by Sweet Stamp Shop. A few of the other SFYTT sisters are posting today as well, so be sure to have a look. And please join us by linking up your sketch creation HERE.
The players (this week):
I started out with some pretty holiday papers from Echo Park's This & That Christmas 6x6 collection, added a sweet sentiment from Verve's new Merry & Bright set, and embellished with some ribbons, trim, paper pleating, layered snowflakes, distressing, and some washi tape. I love the hint of yellow in that diagonal striped pattern, and decided to add a bit more with the ruffled trim and the bottom layer of the snowflakes. The snowflakes, by the way, are stacked, bottom to top, as follows: first, a Verve snowflake, die-cut using one of the dies in the Snowflake Tidings die set, then stamped in Versamark with Verve's Glad Tidings set and clear embossed; second, a Martha Stewart white punched snowflake, and last a red button tied off with natural jute string.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
