Midnight Madness Sketch #75

This is one of my 2 design cards for this week.  This is using Priscilla's newest digital stamp.  I colored and shaded the Jumpin Jacks using my copics.  Then cut them out and layered with dimensionals and then added some crystal effects for shine.  I just thought that they were soooooo cute.


For my second design card I used a stamp called Santa Collage.  I am going through a period right now of finding and using beautiful lace.  This lace was given to me and I thought that it would go well with this sketch.
I colored my Santa with my copic markers.  My snowflake metal brads were colored and glittered. I used diamond dust (stampin up) for the glitter.  I also decided at the last moment to add a poinsettia flower at the top.  I often re-look at cards to see how I can add a finishing touch especially when I think that something is missing!
This weeks's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
