Inkspirational #35

Its time for our sketch challenge at Inkspirational. And here it is the sketch we hope will inspire you to get inky:


I decided to go for a Xmas card this week. Sitting on my craft table I had some emerald coloured material that I found in my stash. It has been there for over a week as I knew I wanted to use it for Jackie's Pantone Colour Challenge but just hadn't decided what to do with it. When I saw this sketch I suddenly knew I would die cut some baubles out of this material. If you look closely you will see it is a really thin mesh material that has gold threading through it-perfect for Xmas!

I have popped the middle bauble up on a foam pad to give dimension and used the 'oh gosh by golly, it's time for mistletoe and holly' sentiment stamp from CAS-ual Friday stamps to represent the thread to hang the baubles.
This month eclectic anthology are our sponsors and before you go don't forget to take a peek here at the fabulous projects the rest of our DT made earlier this week to inspire you.

Have fun and enjoy your weekend x
