Well, it’s Saturday and you know what that means? It’s time for another Saturday Sketch over at Club Anya and Friends. I don’t know about you but I have been so busy these last couple of weeks, I’m ready for some time off. With the semester winding down at work and Christmas ramping up at home I’m a bit frazzled, but I’m so excited for Christmas this year. My little ones are at just the perfect age that they are really enjoying every bit of Christmas. This weekend is the big baking weekend at our house so come Monday we will have a big pile of goodies to share. 😀
Now lets talk sketches. Here’s our Club Anya and Friends Sketch this week. I really like this sketch. It was really easy to whip up a card using it. For my card I used Cheeky Cherry Pie, part of the December release at The Greeting Farm and I colored her with Prismacolors and OMS. Now I do have to confess… I am not a huge fan of the way I colored her hair. It was a little dark down in our basement when I was coloring this and I got a little carried away with the reddish brown and it came out looking a bit like a bad dye job instead of auburn like I was hoping but not bad enough that I was willing to scrap it and start again. And next time I’ll have it down… it’s a good mistake. 😀
When I was picking out paper I went straight for my Thrift Shop pad from October Afternoon because it just fits the 50’s feel of this Cheeky just perfectly. I distressed everything with a little Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and added a bit of twine and copper brads. The edge punch I used is EK success Arch Scalloped edger punch and the corner is also and EK Victorian Photo corner punch. The little sentiment tag is made using an Classic Oval Small Nestie with a Scalloped Circle Nestie behind it.
