A sketch by Domi


Hello!  I'm back again as a December guest designer at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog!  This week we have a sketch by Domi, and the added requirement is to use Stickles or glitter.  Here's my card for this week:

SSS Domi's sketch and glitter

supplies: white, blue, and dark blue cardstock, Hero Arts K5537 Winter Town and CL459 Merry Christmas Trees (for the sentiment), chipped sapphire distress ink, VersaMark ink, white embossing powder, Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles as glue to hold the Twinklets Diamond Dust glitter,  Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large and Scalloped Ovals Large, EKSuccess snowflake punches and Diamond Border punch, and the stars from Hero Arts Clear Mixed Gemstones, CH156

Here's a detail to see the fun glitter which I used on the rooftops, the stars, the ground, and the snowflakes; it's called Twinklets Diamond Dust glitter, and I've referenced it above in my supply list:

And here's the sketch by Domi that we followed:

I hope you're inspired to give this challenge a try - there are lots more samples from the designers over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog to see.  And there's a $50.00 Gift Certificate waiting for the winner to use in the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!


And since, to me, this is clearly a night-time scene, I'll be entering it into the Flourishes Night & Day Challenge.
