Isn't this a great sketch? This is the kind of layout that quickly becomes your "go to" design that you use over and over again. I do love the clean lines that make the image the focal point - it's perfect when you have a fussy image and equally beautiful to use when you don't want to use DP, rather just plain or textured cardstock. Arlana Patten, the Sweet Sketch Wednesday designer, is a master at these sketches!
This image reminded me of sledding with my younger brothers and sister when we were kids. The little tiny penguin would be my youngest brother Doug (10 years younger than me) so I think I'll send this to his family for Christmas!
I colored the image using Copic markers and added stickles to the hat trim and as the snow under the sleigh. The papers I've used are from last year's American Crafts "Merrymint" collection. My snowflake punches are from MS and for the three embellishments I layered a snowflake with a circle and stamped and cut out the candycanes that are layered on top.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I love and appreciate all the comments you leave!
