CCT November Sketch Challenge

Hello! It's time for a sketch challenge over at Christmas Card Throwdown.

 You can flip the design as I have done or use a different shaped element, but we should be able to recognise the original sketch in your Christmas card.

I made the background using a mixture of Coastal Cabana and Dapper Denim inks mixed with shaving foam on an acrylic block. I then used a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge to create a white embossed snowfall, but it wasn't quite snowy enough so I used a brush to spray white gesso on top.

The trees were die-cut using SU's Sleigh Ride Edgelits and I also added some Glimmer Paper stars to enhance the sky. Lots of fun to make! We are looking forward to seeing your interpretations of Gill's great sketch. Happy crafting, April x


  1. Your card is so pretty. That background is seriously stunning!!!

  2. Quel fabuleux ciel April, ta carte est charmante et paisible, biz

  3. I love your artistic background April - what a great technique! Hugs, Gill xx

  4. I like your beautiful card and I like how you take our sketch :-)) You made fantastic winter scene.

  5. This is a very pretty inky effect. I've never tried the shaving foam idea but you make it look very appealing. x

    1. Thanks Alison! It is certainly a fun technique Xx

  6. So pretty April! Love the inky sky and shimmery stars! Thanks for the inspiration!
