MMSC76 - Christmas Stocking


Good Morning  It's time for another Midnight Madness Sketch challenge (MMSC76).  There's a great sketch to play with this week, plus Priscilla is releasing this fabulous new Christmas Stocking image in her "priscillastyles" Store today.  

I colored my image with Copics and Spica pens in tones that match the background paper.  I added Flower Soft to the stocking's cuff and some bling to the greenery.  I finished my design with a poinsettia border, and some crinkle ribbon which I made last week.  Yeah, another Christmas card for my stash!

This card qualifies for the following challenges:
OCC Challenge:  Embellishments -- the more the better; use at least 3 different embellishments
OSAAT Challenge #35:  Theme is  anything goes but embellish it with your favorite things -- I used my new favorite crinkle ribbon as well as bling and flowers
Just Inspirational Challenges #16:  A stamped project, ink or digi -- so anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by; enjoy your day!
Supplies:  Stamp - Christmas Stocking - "priscillastyles" Store; Paper - PTI select white, red pattern vellum-The Paper Co., ornament DSP from my scrap bin (maker unknown), DCWV textured card base; Ink - computer, Copic and Spica Markers; Accessories - Sizzix embossing folder; Spellbinder dies, crinkle ribbon, bling from my stash and a Jolee's border.

  4. Pat this is positively beautiful. I love how you used those pretty poinsettia down the side of your card for accent. Your image is colored beautifully. It doesn't get any better than this! You have used the "priscillastyles" image to perfection. Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

  6. I totally "ditto" everything that has already been said about this card. Wish I had been the first one to post so I could have said it all first, but there is no sense in trying to re-invent or re-state all that has been said, so please accept my admiration of your talent and this work of art! Can I just add....WOWZER!!
