New Month, New Images, New Artist!

Hi everyone - happy weekend! I slept in rather late this morning so that is why you are seeing this in your mail or google reader so late! I didn't want the day to pass without posting though because today is the new release at Squigglefly! Not only are there some wonderful new images, but we are introducing Elizabeta Kushner as a new artist!

 My card today features the brand spankin' new Holiday Lamp Post by Lynne Stansbery. The sentiment is included with the image.

I colored this with Copic markers and chalked the sky and glow from the lamps. I wanted it to appear to be night time so I chalked the blue pretty heavily and added a bit of gray to the edges.  Once I had everything colored, I edged the sides with some silver ribbon and mounted it on to a navy card and then splattered the white gesso for a snowy look.

I am entering this into the Outlawz Greeting Card Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes.

I am off to do my errands, but I will be back tomorrow!  Have a great Saturday!
