Sketch Saturday gets Christmassy

For some reason I'm struggling with my House Mouse new stamps, I've tried colouring this with watercolour pens, Copics, pencils, you name it!  I think this is the best of the bunch using watercolour pencils.  I went out yesterday and visited a Do Craft stockist.  I was quite snobbish about their stuff when I started out but I've found that they do have some nice stuff if you take the time to look.  This DP came from a lovely pad of papers in traditional Christmas colours which inspired me to make a card based on this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  Sentiment and diecut holly are from Craftwork Cards.


  1. Anne it turned out beautifully after your false starts. lovely paper and pretty edge punch.

  2. I think he turned out adorable. I have had a hard time with some of mine also and finally figured out I needed to use a smooth paper so it didn't look so craggy. I have an example up on my blog from this morning that I colored with Copics. Glad to meet you and hope you stop in and visit me.

  3. I think this is lovely Anne. I went through a few stages of don't like that and binning with something I was doing this week - so much wasted card. Heyho ...
