Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers # 194

Welcome back to another challenge brought to you by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!  Our prompt this fortnight could be a real challenge and we're excited to see your ideas for ...

U is for Ugly.

Edna's looking great but that dog and kitchen are 
most definitely some kind of ugly. 
Great job Lee!

The first thought that came to my mind was Ugly Sweater.  I had a sentiment that fit the bill so I sorted through my tried and true stash of Art Impressions stamps and found one that I thought would work,

I opted to create a holiday tag rather than a card.  I pulled out some patterned paper pads and chose something festive for her outfit which I paper pieced onto a white tag.  I colored her skin in with Copics, added tiny gold stars and a coordinating paper to use as a border.  I finished it off with some twine and holiday bells.  Someone invite her to a holiday party!  

I invite you to come visit us at the blog where you will find loads more inspiration and hope to see your "ugly" creation in our gallery.  Remember....snark is appreciated but isn't required to play along.  

Art Impressions - Golden Oldies
Hero Arts - Offbeat Holiday stamp set
Spellbinders - holiday bells
Honeybee Stamps - gold star confetti
Taylored Expressions - Build a Scene patterned papers

Continue to stay safe and healthy my friends.   _____________________________________________________________________________
