Project: Star Stampz Christmas cards x2

This week at Sketch Saturday we have a fun sketch sponsored by Star Stampz. Truthfully, I couldn't choose an image so I made two cards with the sketch because I was that indecisive. Here's the sketch:

The first is just so silly. This one is called Christmas Tangle and I colored her using Spectrum Noir pencils and fussy cut her out. The background paper has been in my stash for ages and though I worried it was a bit too busy it gives it a lovely retro edge that I was looking for. I stamped the sentiment on a label that I cut from a newsprint paper. I added little glitter accents to the string of lights and then added two black candies to complete the sketch.

The second one is a bit simpler, featuring Santa's Letter which I also colored using Spectrum Noir pencils. The sentiment is an ancient banner I have, maybe my first ever Christmas sentiment set, and is a bit tricky to use but I think it works well as a headline banner. I added some really lovely stitched ribbon and two shiny red stars to complete the sentiment. Both were great fun to color, I really do love the sponsor this week.

Be sure to do a sketch before Friday to join the fun!
