Merry Christmas: A Sketch/Color Challenge Two-fer!

Merry Christmas!!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with love, laughter, and loads of loot. Talkin' about loot, you can win a great prize by participating in the sketch and color (pink, green, and ivory) challenges over at Bombshell Stamps. Click here to check out the challenges.

Here's a card that fits both challenges and in keeping with the Christmas loot theme, my card features major booty! *grin*

Here's the sketch!

Here's the prize you can win!

Finally, here's my card for the sketch and the color challenge!

I used A Pirate's Life and Holiday Accessory sets by Bombshell stamps for my card. The images were colored with Copic markers, highlighted with Spica pens. I added a bit of texture with a Glaze pen. In fact, her red belt was coated with the Glaze pen. Sadly, all you can see is glare. Hmm. Maybe it should be a Glare pen *giggle*. My mad photographic skillz also prevent you from seeing that her Santa hat has fuzzy white trim thanks to Fun Flock. Bummer.

The papers are from Basic Grey. I didn't have any bling, pearls, or buttons that matched, so I colored some plain white pearls with a Copic marker. I did alter my sketch by making it a square card, rather than a rectangle.

Thanks for visiting!
