I missed two weeks of Mojo Monday sketches (http://mojomonday.blogspot.ca/), but I’m finally taking part again this week. Here is a copy of the Mojo268 sketch:
Here is my version:
I inked up a new Christmas stamp set, Watercolour Winter, and stamped the pine bough repeatedly on the circle to create a branch from which to hang the ornaments. I think that it looks pretty realistic and am happy with how it turned out.
The colour combination is not one I would normally gravitate to for Christmas cards but I am trying to expand beyond the traditional colour scheme this year. I used the Color Coach to come up with this colour combo and have to say, I like it! Not the red and green I would have selected but the Raspberry Ripple is really deep and rich so it pairs well with the Old Olive.
Thanks for stopping by!
