Holly & gingham!

Saturday, November 13, 2010

A fairly simple sketch this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I went with a simple red, green and white color scheme, for some reason when I use white I want to keep the lines clean and simple. This is as clean and simple as I can get! Anyway, here's the sketch!

I was delighted when I received my new stamps in the post yesterday, just in time for the sketch challenge! I love the new stamp set Festive Foliage by Waltzingmouse Stamps, so many great elements and I'm a big fan of holly!

The sentiment is from the Seasons of Love - Tags stamp set. There's also a little bit of Musical Backgrounds in there too. The little rosette I made from some gathered gingham ribbon and a button.

Don't forget to check out the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog for some inspiration from the Mischief Makers and the WMS Design team.

Oh and don't forget the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Hop on the 17th of November, the theme is Christmas! : )
