Click on over to MFP Speedy TV and enter this week's challenge on Sketch with a Twist.

Their stamp set are one of a kind and such good quality.  I love using them.
 My background paper is from Lost and Found.  I stamped the Christmas tree on the cardstock and again on a plain white piece of paper using black stazon.  That way when I popped up the tree it still shows a tiny bit of the outline on the paper.
 After coloring my trees with COLOURSOFT PENCILS - by Derwent.  I then took a paint brush and brushed some white opaque staz-on ink on the edges and sprinkled with glitter.  Turned out beautiful!

I made my own embellishments: punched two different sizes from the same paper line, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set. Stamped the tiny snowflake and punched it and glued in the middle of JOY.

My "stars" are actually the largest snowflake  stamped on vellum with the white opaque ink and then I sprinkled with glitter.

I LOVE this card and the stamp set.  I hope you'll join our challenge for a chance to win and so I can see your card!

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
