Sketch Saturday with France Sassy

While surfing the 'net this week, I came across a sketch challenge being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and thought I'd play along. I've had France Honey coloured up for a few weeks but have yet to put her on a card. Sketch Saturday #281 gave me the perfect opportunity to do so.

Here's the sketch:

And here's what I created:

I used some of the patterned papers from Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods that I received in my last Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. I was pretty happy they worked so well with my little Sassy. (I tend to colour without having specific papers in mind.) France Honey was coloured with Touch Twin Brush markers and cut out with Oval Nestabilities. The  sentiment is an old rubon from my stash.

This is the first Sassy I've turned into a card. It's my absolute favourite of the ones I've coloured so far. I'm hopeful that I'll be sharing some more very soon.

For all you Touch Twin users, here are the marker colours:

Supplies Used:
stamps: France Sassy digi
cardstock: a|s sugar, a|s french roast, Crafter's Companion Ultra Premium White
paper: Lawn Fawn Into the Woods
ink: Touch Twin Brush Markers
other: Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities, Wplus9 Banner Trio dies, Martha Stewart heart punch, glossy accents

Hugs and Kisses.

Getting Krafty

On the a|s challenge blog we are Kreating with Kraft, my favourite neutral.

Here's my entry:
I started with a kraft card base stamped with the sheet music background in french roast. Next I heat embossed the deer from nordic noel on to a kraft panel. A strip of holiday washi, two mats in cherry and candy cane cardstock, and a french roast sentiment finished up the card.

This card also qualifies for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge - Music, so I'm entering it there as well.

I hope you'll find some time to enter before the challenge ends on Saturday, November 2, 2013.

Hugs and Kisses!

Supplies Used (all A Muse Studio)
