Freshly Made Sketches 97

Happy Holidays_edited-1

Hello again! I'm back this week with a card for Freshly Made Sketches.


Isn't this a great sketch?! So many ways to go with it. I had a couple banners lying on my desk from a previous project and it said Christmas to me - and it's never too early to start on Christmas, right? ;)

Here's a close up of the basket and bike. I don't understand why my embossing powder is acting like that - it's a very sparse covering. Anyone have any ideas? Bad embossing ink? Bad powder? User error? haha

Oh well, maybe it makes it look a little more "loved", like the paint is wearing off. Can you buy that?

And one more parting shot...

What a fantastic idea for a Christmas card! I love the holly trailing out of the basket! And as for the spotty embossing, I'd guess whatever ink you are using to stick the EP to is causing the problem. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Fabulous card, Jen! I like the look of the embossing powder on the bike.... it reminds me of the look of the Nativity Silhouettes stamp set-- it looks really cool!
I wish I had advice to share about the EP, but I struggle with mine often, too.
