Another great sketch in another great challenge - this card was made for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog and is uploaded almost a full 2 hours before cut-off!!!
I've used another of my new stamps - this time Henry from WOJ - isn't he the cutest little meece ever??? Him and his Hot Chocolate loving brothers landed on my doormat this morning :)
The sentiment is from last years Christmas set from Kerry Jo, I can't believe how well it matches Henry and his bauble!
Henry was coloured with Promarkers - I'm really going to have to have some sort of system to my colouring - at the moment I'm still 'learning' and using one colour over another, over another! Ultimately I have no idea what colours I have used!!! I'd heat embossed the image with silver and coloured it only a few minutes later - the embossing started to smudge, so I will make sure I do my embossing way before I want the image next time!
I've glossed the bauble and Henry's hat - but took the piccy whilst it was still wet! Imapatient.................me.....................NO!
I'm really enjoying the effect I'm getting from adding the flourishes with dots of glitter glue - so did loads - again! Made a bit of a boob at the top - so covered it with a flower ;)
The paper is from the DCWV Old World Mat Stack - not a very Christmasy pack but I thought the colours were good!
The mats are not wide enough for 15x15cm cards and as that is the only size I seem to make I cut the blue piece, well it's not really needed behind the purple and now it fits!!!
