Weekend Sketch Challenge Pizza Box

The weekend is my favourite part of the week. Not only because I get to sleep in (as much as you can when you have children clamouring for breakfast) but because Beate posts her weekend sketch challenge! I don't always get a chance to play (there are NEVER enough hours in the day) but when I can, it's always fun and this weekend is no exception.

I was going to try to do two challenges at once and combine Beate's WSC61 with LSC189 over at SplitCoast Stampers, but my Quickutz Scalloped Circle was calling my name and it doesn't qualify for LSC189 which is "Rock, Paper, Scissors".

On Monday, the Technique Lovers Challenge was mini boxes (like the ones I made here) and I had so much fun making them for Colin's party invitations, that I had to make another one.

I stamped the cut and scored pizza box using my snowflake stamps (one is from Holiday Tag Time and I'm not sure where the other one is from as I bought it on eBay quite a while ago) and my Versamark stamp pad and then put the box together.

The snowman image was stamped on Whisper White in Buckaroo Blue, coloured with Prismacolour Pencils and mounted on Buckaroo Blue and again on Whisper White. The smaller circle was stamped with snowflakes and mounted on a piece of scalloped Whisper White. I cut the small circle off the corners of the box and then mounted the main image on dimensionals. The ribbon was tied around the box and slid it just under the main image.

STAMPS: Holiday Tag Time, other unknown set
CARDSTOCK: Whisper White, Buckaroo Blue
INK: Buckaroo Blue, Versamark
ACCESSORIES: Ribbon, Prismacolour Pencils

Hope all my Canadian friends have an AMAZING Thanksgiving Weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
