It's an overcast Friday and the decorations from Christmas are now put away for another year. Nothing like having extra time off work to get inky for some new challenges! Jen posted a new sketch for Reverse Confetti's Sketch For You To Try Challenge and it's a great one! Stacy has a fabulous winter wonder photo inspiration photo for the January Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. Loved the neutrals and white/beige color combo, the textures and the shine. I added white Liquitex modeling paste with a Simon Says Stamp large dotted stencil to create the horizontal border. The silver teapot inspired me to use brushed silver cardstock to die cut the arrow and the basket weave and yarn fringe led me to use jute twine to embellish. I sponged all the edges with Antique Linen distress ink. Loved the end result of a Valentine in non-traditional colors!
