CPS #31 and a Tease!

I love a good challenge... and a sketch challenge has always been a favorite of mine. I saw a sketch on CPS # 31 (Card Positioning Systems blog) that really spoke to me. It's a unique sketch...

Here's my take on the design:

This isn't a classical holiday color theme... but I think the Basic Grey Fruitcake (Snowed In) double sided paper is a perfect foil for the sweet Lockhart angel. Isn't she beautiful?

Here's close up of her detail:

I colored her with copic markers and highlighted the details with Copic Spica glitter pens. Something a little extra on this card was the stitching - first the white twill with a zig-zag stitch down the middle and the straight stitching around the angel.

This was fun! I'll have to check out the CPS sketches more often!


And... not to forget the best part... CHF will be releasing new sets next week. Stay tuned to the Design Team blogs (see my sidebar) for details and sneak peeks this week. I hear there will be PRIZES! Whohoo!!!! Just you wait until you see the amazing things the newest illustrator at CHF has been whipping up! I'll update you with more soon...
