Noel


I don't know how she does it every week, but Jen just keeps coming up with one great sketch after another, and this week is no exception! I really enjoy being part of the SFYTT team because it really forces me to think outside the box and get out of old sketch habits. I'm not saying it's a bad thing to have a "go-to sketch", actually that's a good thing, but to improve your stamping skills (or as Napolean Dynamite would say: skillzzz), I really feel that you need to try new sketches, new technics, new bellies! 'Nuf said.

With the long skinny rectangle as the focal layer, I once again went to my American Art Stamp stash and decided on this image from their cling mount set called Holiday Fun. The other stamping includes the sentiment from CTMH's Say It With Style set, and the snowflakes from CHF's Joyeux Noel. All stamping is done in Ranger Walnut Ink (love that stuff) with the exception of the snowflakes which are stamped in Versamark and embossed with Irridescent Ice embossing powder. Paper is Kraft, True Thyme, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding 6x6 pad. As for the embellishments, or as I like to call 'em--bellies: Felt Flurries snowflake, Basic Grey buttons and that yumm-O ribbon from SU! found in the holiday mini catalog.

Ok...here's your chance to stretch yourself: play along with Jen's sketch today and if you decide to upload your creation to SCS, just use the keyword SFYTT; and/or if you have a blog, leave a link to your blog in the comment section of Jen's blog entry for today. Last but not least, don't forget to check out the SFYTT team, including Jen and her super-duper October guest designer Nancy Riley.
