Sketchie Free For All at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are all well and those not I wish well soon.

Today I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and as it's the last Tuesday of the month - wow where did that month go!!!! 
it's time for a 


So you could use the fabulous new sketch Dawny P has made for us - as I did - or you could use any other sketch from the PTW archives - just remember to let us know which one :o)

I had a blast playing with some new goodies and this is what I came up with:

And here's how I did it:

I started by creating the background using Sue Wilson 'Bold Snowflake' stamps and 'Feathery Snowflake' stamps - stamped with Adirondack Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder - and then inked all over with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. I also added PVA glue to the edge and dipped it in Ranger Clear Rock Candy.

I also embossed a panel of card using Sue Wilson 'Snowflake Lattice' embossing folder and inked with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and added Clear Rock Candy to the edges.

Sue Wilson 'Let it Snow' die cut in white then inked with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with Stamp n Bond and sprinkled with Clear Rock Candy - this is soooooooo twinkly IRL. Then I die cut another in black and offset to create a shadow.

A few Martha Stewart punched snowflakes some adhesive pearls, ribbon and tinsel from stash to finish it off.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my DT buddies.
