Sketch Time

Morning everyone what a wet dull day here in Kent, It really is bad out,
so lots of craft and Harry Potter number 5, Poppie has never seen them so we got the full set on Blue Rae We have had one on nearly every other day, over the last week, I thought they were a bit to heavy for her but she is really enjoying them,
anyway on with my card, A dt one today for stamptacular

it's sketch time

Now when you see my card you will see I always struggle a little with sketches, I lay it all out, sort my papers glue it all down and then realise my picture is a bit to big and you can't see the sketch behind !! (blush)

I tried paper piecing on this image, I was quite pleased, I'm never sure how to make presents look good with a pattern when i'm colouring, so now ive found an answer, for all those who don't know how to do this I printed and coloured the image onto white, then printed the image onto the green patterned paper,(nitwits collection) cut out the present only and glued it onto my white one, then printed it onto red paper and cut out only the ribbon and bow, then glued this on top of the patterned present, hope that makes sense, hey presto a patterned paper present.

He is so cheeky looking :)
I love all the glitter around his santa coat, it really comes out well in this photo,

My challenges are:

the crafty pad - anything goes
