Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 91

Welcome to another edition of my take on Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!! Here is your challenge for the week and I hope you will play along!


And yet another Christmas card...I hope you aren't tiring of them yet. :)


Are you thinking, "but where's the stamping in this??" Well see those adorable little stockings? Those are stamped! That is one of many super adorable images from Taylor's Wings of Joy set.


The stockings are stamped on TE's Choice Snow White and then colored with Copics. Oh my goodness I just LOOOVE coloring with Copics. Did I tell you that I will be attending a certification class coming up soon? I'm SOOO EXCITED!! I can't wait to get my hands on that airbrush system and figure out how to use it, lol!

I used 3 different patterned papers here and I thought that they actually coordinated really well together! Sometimes it's good to think outside the box and not just use what comes in the paper pack...at least that's what I'm trying to remind myself. :)

So let's see what other inspiration is in store for you this week...
