Snowglobe

It's time for another fabulous sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the talented Narelle.  And here is her sketch:

As soon as I saw the sketch, I saw a snowglobe and as luck would have it, I have a snowglobe set and dies from the recent Hero Arts October Monthly Card Kit 😄  Originally I was going to make a shaker card, but really, I'm just too lazy, so settled for a layered up card with an opening in the front.  



I die-cut the globe part from a white panel and then sponged Distress Inks onto the card base where that opening would be.  The kit comes with hill dies so I cut two of these and also lightly sponged with Broken China ink.  The images were stamped and, in the case of the single tree, fussy cut.  The snowglobe base was stamped onto some white woodgrain paper that I sponged with Gathered Twigs ink.  The "snow" is from Two Feet Deep set by PTI.



Thanks for visiting!  The FMS DT have come up with some wonderful cards using the sketch, so check them out.

I'm linking this card up to The Male Room, who are looking for 'scapes this challenge and Merry Monday, who are looking for masculine Christmas cards.
