Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #87

With school starting last week, I opted out of this challenge last week! So sorry! With one successful week of school under my belt and this great sketch, I couldn't resist this week!

I am also trying to work on a Christmas swap so I brought out a brand new set from the Holiday Mini Catalog called Holy Family. I think I own every one of the stamp sets that SU has had with the nativity and couldn't resist the beautiful lines of this image.

I chose to do the spotlighting tech. It's a great way to add color without having to color an large image such as this one.



Have a great Monday!

Stamp set: Holy Family
Cardstock/Ink colors: Brushed Gold, Real Red, Whisper White
DSP: Christmas Cocoa Specialty
Other: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aqua Painter, 1" circle Punch, Sponge Dauber, Staz-On Ink, 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, SNAIL adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals
