Freshly Made Sketches #464

Hello everyone! It's Wednesday, and my pleasure to be the sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Last week I had so many layers (which I love), that this week decided to keep it pretty CAS. I pulled out an adorable holiday set from Reverse Confetti (currently out of stock - sorry!): Holiday Gnomes.

I started by giving my little CAS scene some depth with a stencil from Taylored Expressions. I didn't even have to ink up my blue blender brush; I just wanted a very subtle color. I had enough ink already on my brush and it turned out just how I envisioned.

Next I stamped and colored my gnome, using Hero Arts Black and Copic markers. I added a lot of Nuvo Shimmer pen to his hat and star, and it is so sparkly! The house is stamped on patterned paper from Amy Tangerine. I layered all of this on a green panel and white cardstock base. A little die cut cloud (Whimsy Stamps), a banner sentiment, and it's all done!

I hope you will join our sketch challenge this week, and add your creations to our gallery! 

This challenge will end at 3:00 EST time on Monday, December 7th. On Tuesday, we will announce the winner of this week's challenge who will be known as the "Queen or King of Clean". The team will choose other gallery favorites to be known as a "Perfect Princess or Prince". Be sure to stop at the Freshly Made Sketches blog, and click on the names of my teammates to see the beautiful cards they have created this week!
