today is kicking off a brand new Inky Paws Challenge over at the Newton's Nook Designs blog! this month, we're all about that sketch!
there's a lot you can do with that sketch! here's what i made:
i used the Message in a Bottle dies to replicate the 'banner' shapes in the sketch! i colored the whale and fish images from Season's Greetings with copics!
the water was created by free-hand cutting some waves from a polka dotted vellum! once it was cut i just added a hint of color to the vellum by blending on some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink! LOVE that look!
i popped up the front panel over the card base, and stamped the actual bottle images from the Message in a Bottle stamp set to really define the bottles, so cute! love this non-traditional Christmas card!
i hope you play along too! you could win some Newton's Nook of your own!
