The Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast today (SC453) was a real challenge for me. To make it work, I had to mirror image it so the images would fit better. After playing w/ it for quite a while, I finally arrived at what you see and it’s kind of growing on me.

The images are from DRS Designs.  For the cat in the moon, I used a few yellow Copics then die cut using a big circle. I did the same for the sentiment and the two ring frames around the fussy cut cat & mouse, are actually from the sentiment die cuts. I had to make them a little smaller and I liked the way they looked instead of another circle image. I added some stamped white stars on top and some starry ribbon across the bottom of the fence. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For my Tri-Shutter card, I used this sweet Snowman w/ Birds image. After coloring him with Copics, I die cut him using my out of the box Nestie technique. I added a lt blue die cut layer then attached him to the front section of my tri-shutter card. The purple piece was die cut w/ a fancy snow border. I didn’t use other papers on the sections to the right of him, because I liked the way all the white space showed him off.

Julie Warner –
I added narrow sections of different patterned papers on the open sections. On the far right right panel, I added a long pennant flag with the sentiment and the snowflake on top. I added a couple of the same snowflake on the panels facing the sentiment, but so sorry…I didn’t take a pic to show it!

Julie Warner –
After finishing, I added just a little stickles to a few areas of the snowman. If you’d like the template for this Tri-Shutter card, it can be found HERE.  These are the Copics I used to color everything.
