Less is more - Sketch with Tiddly Inks

Hallo! Poe wat is het heet zeg! Alles plakt. :( Ik dacht vandaag dat ik het misschien wat koeler zou krijgen als ik een kerstkaartje zou maken, maar dat heeft helaas niet gewerkt. ;)
Ik heb vandaag een kaartje gemaakt voor de sketch challenge van Less is more. De eigenlijke sketch is met rondjes, maar voor deze kaart heb ik ervoor gekozen om met vierkantjes te werken. Misschien volgt er later deze week nog wel een kaart die wel rondjes heeft. De afbeelding die ik heb gebruikt is Inky xmas critters van Tiddly Inks. Ik ken hem nu even niet vinden in de nieuwe Tiddly Inks shop, maar Christy zal hem ongetwijfeld snel weer in de shop plaatsen. Ik heb de afbeelding ingekleurd met potloden en de ogen van de dieren en sneeuwpop heb ik gekleurd met een zwarte glaze pen. Ik heb de vierkantje uitgeknipt en met foamtape op de kaart geplakt. De tekst heb ik rechtstreeks op de kaart geprint. De strip rood-wit gestreept papier is geplakt op een stuk rood papier. Ik heb met een figuurschaar een geschulpt randje aan de onderkant geknipt.

Hello! Wow it is really hot in the Netherlands. We are having a 3 day heatwave. They say tomorrow the temperature will drop aboout 20 degrees celsius. But for today I was thinking I might cool down a bit when I made a christmas card, but unfortunately that didn't work. ;)
I made my card with the lovely sketch from the Less is more challenge blog. The orignal sketch has circles on it, but for this card I used squares. Maybe I will make another card later this week with circles. The image I used is Inky christmas critters from Tiddly Inks. I can't find it it now in the Tiddly Inks shop, but hopefully Christy will add it soon. I have coloured the  image with my pencils and I used a black glaze pen to colour the eyes of the animals and snowman. I cut the squares out and added foamtape to their backs. I printed the sentiment on the card. I added a layer of red cardstock under the striped paper and cut it with shaped scissors to cretae a scalloped border.

I want to enter my card in the following challenges:
Less is more challenge - sketch
Clear it out Tuesday - Clean and simple
Top tip Tuesday - T is for.....a Tiddly Inks image. :)
