A new month and time for another challenge at Crafting with An Attitude
. This month the sponsor is Beccy’s Place
. Beccy’s shop was new to me and I enjoyed browsing through it. She has digis as well as clear stamps.
I chose the image New Friends for my project. I loved the depiction of two very different individuals being happy to see each other. I created a Christmas card.
I opted to use only one traditional color and replaced the green with a non-traditional blue – which I used various shades of throughout my card. I printed the digi onto Strathmore Toned Tan paper and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. I decided the little boy’s jacket needed some stripes and so I added them. Coloring on the Toned Tan paper makes the pencil coloring pop so – I love it!
I colored the snow with my white pencil and applied the shading with the Cool Greys. Once completed, I covered the area with Zig 2-way glue and added Bridal Tinsel embossing powder. The heat applied to melt the embossing powder caused the glue to bubble and give me that cool texture.
I added a 5.75×5.75 square of background paper with snowflakes on it onto my 6×6 cardpanel. My focal image was cut down to 4.25×4.25 and I framed it with a cutout of a 4.5×4.5 silver glitter square from my DCWV Washi Tape stack.
I stamped the sentiment onto dark blue cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut it out with a stitched banner die and popped it onto the card with foamtape.
