Big wishes

If you need more inspiration to enter the STAMPlorations Theme and Sketch challenge this month, here is my take on the sketch AND the theme. Don't worry you can choose either for the chance to win a prize!

I used double sided paper to create the shape on the sketch and the balloons and stars from A Snarky Birthday to You stamp set, stamped with coloured inks.

To colour the images I used watercolour pencils and a water brush.

The star of the show is the BIG Birthday Wishes Phrase Die - CUTplorations, which I die-cut from glitter card.

Still 2 weeks to enter the challenge, and yes I know it's a busy period but take some time out and enjoy some stamping, colouring or die-cutting. Check out today's post on the STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration, for this challenge and all other STAMPlorations December challenges.
