Merry Kiss-mas


Happy Saturday Everyone!!  This weeks Sweet Stop Sketch is a very simple design, but loaded with possibilities to dress it up a bit as well.  I decided to keep the card design simple using a single sheet of DP from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas; and some yummy Olive Satin Center Band ribbon from Ribbon Carousel.  

I spent an entire afternoon creating this fun scene with some adorable Your Next Stamp images.  I used all  of the images from the Merry Kiss-mas stamp set (Finn, Fhiona, the mistletoe and sentiment) and then did a little masking for the background with Fhiona's Christmas Tree and the sofa stamp from Window Play Inside.  I paper pieced the  sofa and pillows and then used a Warm Grey Copic marker to add shadowing and depth.  Finn and Fhiona are both popped up with foam tape for added dimension.  I had lots of fun coloring, however poor Finn ended up needing a "hair transplant"!!  LOL  :)  I originally could not get the part in his hair correct, so rather than toss the image and start all over... I stamped Finn again, coloring only his hair, cut it out and pasted it on top of the bad hair.  Can't even tell can ya?!?!  :)  

I hope you will find some time to check out what the other Sugar Babies have done with this weeks sketch and play along with us.

Super matching of your ribbon colour to the Christmas tree in the image & those stylized trees in the paper. The big bow really picks up on the red ribbon of the mistletoe cluster & the vertical stripe of the sofa is echoed beautifully by your wide ribbon.
