Hello blog friends. This card was supposed to be for last week's sketch challenge over at the LIM challenge. However, I never made it in time.
As this week the theme is watercolour, I thought that they might work for this week as the background was made with sparkle pens spritzed with water.
Stamps and dies are all from Sheena Douglass perfect partners range. I coloured lights in using sakura glaze pens as this makes them glossy and they look more realistic.
These lights do take me back in time when I was little and we had these lights on our tiny Christmas tree. Hence the sentiment as they made me somewhat emotional.
The pictures don't do them justice as in real life they are uber sparkly. Also, you might be wondering why I added the background. That would be to hide the smudges, lol!
So I'm hoping that I won't get told off again this week. Hugs, Theresa xx

The tree lights look great with the glossy lights using the Sakura Glaze pens, and the sparkle pens spritzed with water work beautifully. xReplyDelete

You have managed to get some great sparkle and gloss on those lights Theresa. I'm swooning at your background - it kind of looks like a really artistic photograph where they make everything blurred - incredible water colouring. Thanks so much for letting us see this at Less is More xxReplyDelete
