Winner at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge
Winner at Hiding in My Craft Room
this is my 2nd post for the day. for my Bugaboo Guest challenge post, please go here. thanks! :)
I am so thankful to be a guest designer for Elisabeth Bell and the Digi Bells challenge blog through July. the images are just so cute and fun! :)
being a guest designer means I also get to play along in the monthly challenges. a new one begins today and the theme is 'Holidays.' since y'all know I'm trying to get a jump start on my Christmas cards, (especially since my MIL took every one of the cards I had in my stash with her when she was here on her visit a few weeks ago), I opted for a Christmas card.
I'm using the oh, so adorable 'Meadow Magic' image along with papers from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection. I printed the image onto kraft cs for something a bit different this time. I did my usual watercoloring with SU! inks, with the exception of the snow and snowman. those were colored with a white chalk pencil. talk about something VERY different for me! snowflakes were accented with a white gel pen.
both main dies are by Spellbinders, 'Merry Christmas' die is by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, seam binding is from Paper Sweeties, and buttons from my vintage stash. angel wings are accented with a wink of stella glitter pen.
that's it for me today! enjoy your weekend, whatever fun plans you have!
