Penny Black Saturday #181 - Sketch

Good morning everyone, and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks to everyone who entered last week's Total White-Out challenge - fab entries as always, and a good opportunity for many of you to catch up on some last minute Christmas makes.

This week we have a sketch for you by our teamie Domi - fab layout and I'm sure you'll enjoy using it as much as I did.

Our prize this week for a randomly drawn winner is a $20 online gift voucher from our sponsor 1-2-3 Stitch to spend in their store - fab!

Don't forget to be eligible for the prize you need to use a Penny Black stamp, large sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus of your project.

The rest of the DT have really rocked the sketch so I hope you'll go look-see ... here's mine.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I  ordered 4 new Flexmarkers to increase my furry colouring options in the Letraset family (outside of using Copics!). Well they arrived yesterday so I was able to put them to work in colouring this little meece ... what d'you reckon?? (I coloured him using Flexmarkers "Cappuccino" and "Champagne", and Promarkers "Sandstone" and "Ivory").

Stamps: Penny Black "Xmouse ornament!" (1673H), "a wish..." (3502F);
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Crafter's Companion "The Snowman";
Supplies: various sparkly gems;
Tools: large oval and large scalloped oval nestabilities; Martha Stewart "doily lace" edge punch; Memory Box "Frosty Border" die.
