TechnoStamper Sketch Challenge

Another Monday...Another Sketch from MJ at TechnoStamper. I think she has a thing for circles, as the last few weeks there's been circles on the card. This weeks sketch is CAS, it's a great one to use with many images you may already have in your stash.

It gave me the opportunity to ink up this wonderful Christmas Image - Santa's Lap from Cornish Heritage Farms. The image is stamps in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique. I cut the circle with my Nestabilities, sponged the edges than layered on a larger Black circle. The sentiment is from SU's A Cardinal Christmas.

Details:
Stamps - CHF Santa's Lap, A Christmas Cardinal (SU)

Ink - Black Archival, Markers, Gray
Card Stock - Watercolor, Black, Red
Other - Big Shot, Nestabitlities, Sponge Dauber, 1/4" Circle Punch, Aquapainter

Here's MJ's sketch if you'd like to play along.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
