Tonight I'm sharing a little sneak peek of the December SOTM called Candlelight Garden. It's such a pretty and versatile set! I was holding this set for the SOTM blog hop on December 1, but in the bustle of last week's power outage adventure I plum forgot to sign up for the hop.
I started with this week's challenge from Retrosketches. I stamped the jar and the bouquet along the right side of the card, then I fussy cut about 3/4 of an inch of the card edge right off. I masked off the jar and added the string lights using Glacier ink. Then I water colored everything using my water brush and ink from my pads (Glacier, Juniper, Honey, and Pomegranate).
I stamped my sentiment onto a 3/4" cardstock scrap, then cut in a dovetail for a banner. I outlined the sentiment and card front with a journaling pen. Finally I lined the inner edge of the card with some La Vie En Rose paper. I know I'm going to be loving on this set all through the month of December.
