Hi everyone! I hope your weekend was a good one. We had the most awesome weather over the weekend and I loved it. The dogs have a lot more energy too and they got in some good play time. I took a little time to film them playing in the field by our house so I have another Riley/Baxter video to share at the end of the post!
Today starts a new challenge on Squigglefly's Blog! Prepare yourself to be inspired by the Rascals, and please play with us!
Today's card is one I made for the Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper Challenge The card I CASED can be seen HERE
I also entered this in The Outlawz Copic Marker Challenge which was anything goes this week.
My image is one called Kris Kringle by Marla Shega. It's a favorite image, and is a dream to color. I printed the image out rather large and then cropped a lot of it away to imitate the image in the card I was CASING. then I had fun with embellishing it. I added gold embossing powder and crystal lacquer to the glasses, and a little bit of stickles on the beard. The word "Believe" was computer generated and printed at the same time I printed the image.
I clipped the corners of the red layer around the image and threaded some gold ribbon in the notches on the side. It's mounted on top of a red layer that was embossed with snowflakes. I rubbed a little Real Red ink over the embossing. I'm slowly adding to my Christmas card stash!
As promised, here's the video! If you can't see it on my blog, you can watch it at YouTube HERE
