Today’s Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge is another sketch. I had fun playing with this one! I turned the sketch a couple different ways to try things out, but ended up liking it the best in the original format. I also tried a couple different sets, but ended up with Mr. Twigster! I just think he is the cutest little snowman. I’m making my Christmas tags this year with him, too!
For the base, I started with Tangerine Tango and then a layer of Chocolate Chip (do you know how much Chocolate Chip I’ve gone thru this catalog? A lot of our designer papers have that color in it!) I then added a section of the mitten print from Frost Day Designer Paper and a coordinating dotted strip of DSP in that same package. I wrapped some Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon around that (if you haven’t tried this ribbon, you don’t know what you are missing! It ties SO nice and has such a shimmery look!) I colored in Mr. Twigster and his packages with Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango and Bashful Blue, along with his striped scarf and nose. Then I grounded him with some Bashful Blue at his feet and shadows on his body. Finally, I added some two-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds to make him sparkle! The Olive mini brads across the top finish off the card.
