I Know Him

September sketchThere is a new sketch challenge up over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  If you like circles then you will certainly enjoy this one.  I might have found it a little difficult.  I am not strong at layering, and this seemed like the kind of sketch that really needed layers.

Ek Gorman, 52CCT aI pulled out a piece of printed Christmas cardstock and die cut a bunch of circles out, trying to somewhat match the sketch.  Then I snagged a piece of textured cardstock, and heat embossed some whited embossing powders over a few snowflakes and a Santa image from an Ink Roads stamp set.  I added a sentiment onto the top of the card from the same stamp set.

Ek Gorman, 52CCT bUsing my colored pencils I added some depth and highlights to the card.  I then added some red sequins from a now retired pack of Sparkle Blend sequin mix.

This may not be the most creative use of the sketch, but there is a since of whimsy and fun in the card, so I’ll keep it.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.  Till then happy crafting!

  1. Great card EK! My “second” card, that I didn’t get round to, would have had cut out circles, I think it works so well, especially with the texture behind. I love the quirkiness of this.
