Skipping Stones Designs Sketch 108

Hi everyone! Welcome back for another Skipping Stones Design Tuesday Sketch! This month we were generously sponsored by Canvas Corp. I know I said I would be switching over to Valentines cards soon, but when I started playing around with the Holiday Cats and realized it fit nicely over the fisherman in the Holy Carp I just had to make one more holiday card! 


supplies used: Skipping Stones Design (Holy Carp, Holiday Cats, Sentiment Frames, and Grunge), Canvas Corp pattern paper, Copics

To mimic the vertical panel in the sketch I knew I wanted to try to bring more nautical elements in so I sketched a buoy. 

The waves were created by snipping half circle waves out of the aqua Canvas Corp pattern paper and inking the edges a bit. 

I added texture to the boat, but stamping white metallic ink over the boat. 


We'd love to have you play along with this week's sketch challenge. Be sure to link up your creation on the Skipping Stones Design Blog!

This is hilarious! I love the huge teeth! And I didn't realize Canvas Corp. had patterned paper!

Hope you have a great New Year, Wendy!
