Hello, I hope you are doing well! Today over at The Paper Players it’s Sketch Week and I absolutely adore the sketch that Anne Marie has chosen for us! I had the Santa and Palm Tree sitting on my desk already colored, and then an idea popped into my head. Why not mask off the base cardstock and make three beach scenes. So I did! I think it turned out quite well and I will definitely be making more of these in the future.
You know me and like to combine challenges, so I am also going to be playing along once again with the Global Design Project where their theme is Christmas and Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge-Make a Scene.
Card Details: Spellbinders Deckled Edge dies to make my stencils, Santa and the Palm Tree are from separate sets but are both Sunny Studios. I used both Copics and Prismas as my medium and Oxide ink for the background.
For more amazing inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!
Take care and hope to see you at The PaperPlayers! Nanc’

I am quite impressed with your “scenes” because I can never seem to make a scene work!! Your little Santa looks quite at home with them too! Cute!
