We were able to choose a Sassy Studio Designs image, and I picked Victorian Holiday Sassy, as she looked like a great image for a Christmas card. I printed her on Cryogen CS. I decided to use Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch 179-109 for the design of my card, and then created a scene on Stampin' Up CS with my brayer & some inks, (SU and Distress), for the central portion of the design. I wanted the sky to be dark, so that I could use my new Memory Box Star of Wonder dies with it. Oddly enough, the only other die I used was a Nestabilities Classic Square for my Create with TLC sentiment, which was printed on Bazzill Kraft CS. The body of the card is also Bazzill Kraft CS, and my DP is from the Glitz Joyeux Noel collection. I distressed my DP with my Zutter Distrezz-It-All, and then inked the edges with Distress Antique Linen.
My image was accented with Copic Spica pens on her earring and lips, and Glossy Accents on her eyes, (before I foolishly cut the bottle tip too short, which I did because I broke off a toothpick inside it, while trying to unplug it, sigh...). I used up almost all of my bottle of Stardust Stickles on the stars, which left me with barely enough to do the card on my previous post. (I did the posts in reverse order of actually making the cards. Just to confuse us both. Keeps us on our toes, don't you think?) Let's see, what else do I need to tell you? Oh, yeah, I accented the image with a bit of white gel pen after coloring with Copics: BG70, BG72, R20, R21, E000, E00, E11, E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, E51, E53, E55. And I finished the card by wrapping it with a bit of twine from my stash.
I hope this wasn't too painful for you. I must get on with my next card before I get back to commenting on your blogs. I do so enjoy visiting them to see what you have created. And I very much love all the wonderful comments that you leave on my blog--it does my heart good to read each of them--thank you all!
Here's hoping you will add something to our new challenge! I am looking forward to it!
