Sketch Saturday

While looking at various blogs, I came upon Sketch Saturday. The sketch struck me right away as a fun one, so I found some great holiday paper and stamps. I'm a pushover for a good sketch, and this sketch is great! Here is my take on the sketch:

The patterned paper is from CTMH's Aspen My Reflections Level 2 Paper Packet, and the stamps are CTMH's My Acrylix set called Homeward Bound. I colored the image with watercolor pencils and blended them with my Waterbrush. The glitter is Diamond Sparkles by PSX (very old, in fact I dont think the company exists anymore). The ovals and circles were cut using my Coluzzle. Finally, a chance to use my oval template!

I love the stamps you used, pretty papers and all the details. The advent calendar you made is stunning and it's so good to carry on a family tradition. The choccies look yummy too LOL! Chris

The colors are awesome. Neat sketch. Even with all the different elements you incorporated, it does not look busy.
