My Christmas Tree each year is far from Clean and Simple. Far, far, far from it. I love the additions of the handmade ornaments each year from the boys, or the special godparent ornaments for them, or the fact of changing out the styles of lights due to circumstances beyond my control Perhaps someday I will have a big house where I can showcase two trees, the kind mentioned previously and one that is pristine, cultured, thoroughly thought out. It would have beautiful sparkling glass ornaments hanging delicately from string and showcased by twinkling white lights.
Welcome to the blog hop showcasing Skipping Stones Design's beautiful new set, Christmas Song and the sketch for Challenge #97! Wasn't Tammy's project wonderful?! (If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design. The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.)
I stamped one of the ornaments in this set three times onto a textured embossed base, being sure to mask where necessary. The images were then colored and outlined with markers and strings drawn with a pen. All the design elements, except the sentiment, were outlined with a very light gray marker to add some depth to a one layer card.
Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers’ blogs. This month we are welcoming Andrea Ewen, Tammy Tutterow and Karen Christensen to our team as Guest Designers!
