This week we were given a sketch challenge and I decided to carry on with the non-traditional Christmas colors. It was a lot of fun and I hope you'll give it a try. Thinking outside the box is a great way to get the creative juices flowing. Here's the sketch:
And here's my take on it:
For the packages I used Dreamweaver Stencil LL466, which I dry embossed using a Sizzix Big Kick and Core'dinations paper. After dry embossing, I sanded the images with fine grit sand paper and then cut them out. The sentiment is Dreamweaver Stencil LS91, which I inked using VersaMagic Dew Drop in purple hydrangea.
While I'm not ready to give up the traditional Christmas colors, this was a good way to get me thinking outside the box. So now it's your turn. Take a look at your papers collection with an eye toward the non-traditional. You just might be surprised at what you find. For more inspiration, check the blogs of my fellow design team members listed on the sidebar on the right, and get ready to be wowed by the projects they've created.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting,
