I really like this week's Nacho Average sketch challenge. We hope you will too and will be inspired to play along with the challenge!
Here's my contribution:
I especially like this sketch because it gave me an opportunity to play with the Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies featured in the Holiday Catalog. It also gave me an opportunity to play with White Christmas, one of my all-time favorite stamp sets. It is one of my favorites because of the car image which reminds me of my red and black Mini Countryman. My inspiration for this card was our small house in a big forest and the view out our living room window, complete with dark wood paneling!
To create this card, I started with a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock. This is the piece that would fit behind the window. I sponged on Marina Mist to create the back ground. After I cut my window out of Sahara Sand card stock, I placed it over my background piece. Using a pencil, I made light marks at the corner of the window panes. This would give me an idea on where the placement of the stamped images would go. Once the images were stamped, I colored in the car, Christmas tree and bare tree using Blender Pens and ink pads. To create the paneling, I sponged Early Espresso ink on the inside of the Stripes Embossing Folder, inserted the paper and ran it through the big Shot.
Be sure to check out each of the Design Team's entries to the challenge and leave a comment if you can. It means a lot to all of us! We'd also love for you to play along with the weekly challenges. A Linky Tool has been added so you can upload your creation to the Nacho Design Team site.
