2 Sketches 4 You Laura's Sketch 13

There's a great sketch at 2 sketches 4 you this week. I keep looking at these vintage snowman images I have but am never inspired enough to actually do anything with them. I decided I would have a go and use one on this sketch. I've stretched the sketch from a square to a rectangular card and my image is a bit bigger than it should be, I'm not sure I'm happy with the end result, but I can't decide!

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

This is a real odds and ends card, I've used
  • A snowman image which has been hanging around my desk for far too long!
  • Backing paper from the bottom of my drawer!
  • A Paper mania domed sentiment sticker.
  • Black and red gingham ribbon which has been at the bottom of my ribbon box for ages!
Thanks for looking

  6. You should be very happy with the results - it's gorgeous.

    I love your vintage snowman. It reminds me of Bon Homme from Quebec back in the seventies.

    Great work!
