SISC #36: Holiday Princess Release & Sketch Challenge

Greetings! Welcome to another fabulous StampInsanity Challenge! This week, both Wards have projects to share with you in honor of a brand new holiday release! Check it out!

Holiday Princess Maddie 2010

For this week’s challenge, we have a sketch to play with.

SISC36 11-18

Here’s my creation using one of the fabulous new Maddies and “Peace” sentiment.


Isn’t she lovely??? I had such a blast coloring her in! I love her headpiece. It reminded me of the American Girl book from the 80’s…is it Kirstin??? But I digress…


I colored her with my colored pencils, and added some Stickles to her headpiece. I LOVE the paper I used with her…it matched her dress perfectly! And the red on the paper is actually foil, so in real life it has a fabulous shine.


I used some Glimmer Mist on the Peace for a bit more sparkle too. Plus some inking around the edges of course!

So hurry and grab this beautiful set! Your Holiday cards will be stunning!!! And, just in case you need some incentive... from November 26-29th, the StampInsanity store will be having a sale!!! You can get 30% off all stamps! That's awesome! Just use coupon code CyberBlack2010. Stock up on all of the fabulous StampInsanity images you've been pining over.
