Retro Rubber #52..Let's get sketchy...


It's time for another fun  challenge over at Retro Rubber

This time, we want you to use the sketch - 

I love sketches and for this one I had something in mind..but when I tried it out, I wasn't in love..

So I rummaged through my stamps and saw the awesome Reindeer Games set by Art Impressions, I bought it last November when it was released at Michael's making it just over a year old.

I love the sassy lady dressed as a Reindeer / elf. I coloured her using distress inks, aquabrush and promarkers. I then fussy cut her out.

I thought she needed Reindeer paper and so I hunted through my Christmas papers for the scrap you see here. I added a glittery panel for the other border.

I used some creative license and moved the sentiment up the card a bit, but I am guessing Jane will let me have that :)

I know who I am sending this too, my parents have a very sassy neighbour and I bet she would go to a Christmas party dressed as a Reindeer/Elf LOL.

Show us your interpretation of the sketch and head over to Retro Rubber and view the awesome makes by my teammates.

Challenge ends on December 2nd. Don't forget to use a stamp a year or older and tell us about it that's part of the fun. Also, please limit your entries to 10 challenges including ours.
