I was feeling extra scrappy today so I have been camped out in my scrap room for most of the day. I did my Tuesday DT project for Crafter's Companion then I went to work on some challenges on Sketches4all.
I did a tag challenge which I will show you on Tuesday (I already added it to the post I scheduled with my CC DT project). :-O
After I made the tag, I started on Chery's Holiday Challenge #12 - make a Christmas card. Easy right? I'm taking the Holiday Card Workshop from Online card classes and was totally inspired by the class to make this card. I love their classes!!!
I made a couple of masks of my stamped image by stamping out the image and cutting away the bits that I needed. Then I used them on the image I stamped on the card then I colored with my Tim Holtz ink pads.
Here is one of the masks on top of my stamped image.
Here I am inking the image.
I cut another mask that I used for the brown and grey that I used. After inking with the TH ink pads, I used a Spectrum Noir marker to color the legs of the bird. And another one to color around the image and to make a bit of a shadow on the ground. GB10, IG1 and IB1.
And following the tutorial from my online class, I trimmed off a bit from one side of the card and then used scrap paper pieces adhered to the inside of the card to peek out from under the cut edge. To finish, I stamped a sentiment on to the front and also the inside of the card. Well, almost to finish, I also stamped and heat embossed some snowflakes to the inside too. And added a bit of crystal stickles to the stars of the stamped inside sentiment.
And this brings me to the next challenge, Cheryl's Challenge #15 -The inside story. This challenge is to finish the inside of a card. I finished out the inside of this Christmas card.
I have not been very inspired to be scrappy for awhile so it was nice to get inspired today. And I don't think I'm done yet!! lol
Thanks for looking!
