Another way cool sketch Rox and Flowergal36! I loved this easy but very attractive sketch. Here's what I did.....
Panel 1 & 2 a & b are one piece of cs.
Instead of lot's of layers, I cut a square out of cs, used it for a mask, then sponged the two squares on white cs panel. Then stamped the snowflakes and dots around using versa mark, clear ep'd them.
Put the cut out squares over the sponged ones, then sponged around with the vintage photo.
Panel 3: Sponged edges of a white cs panel. Set aside. The image was stamped on w/c paper then w/c with re-inkers and acrylic paints. Did a color wash around the image and sponged the edges. Put is on the white panel then popped it up on the #1 panel.
Made a red bow with the bow easy and ribbon from my friend Bertie aka Bertlady.
Hope you like my card.......TFL :0)
