Tilda with Presents
Here is another Christmas card. I think I'm stuck on that holiday right now for some reason. I am submitting this card for SIX challenges. I think that's a personal record. Here they are.
Just Magnolia - Bev's sketch (shown below) using a Magnolia image. The image I chose is Tilda with Presents, which was a RAK from my friend Barbara. (thanks!) I colored Tilda with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. I added some Stickles to her wings, the holly in her hair and the ribbons on the presents. I also used a gold metallic pen on the ribbon of the middle present.
Stamp Something - Something with your favorite colors or favorite papers. This could either be easy or hard depending on how you look at it. I don't have any "favorite" colors - I love them all! For this one I chose one of my favorite paper lines - Basic Grey - and also one of my favorite BG collections of all time - Fruitcake.
Basic Grey - Embossing, plus at least one Basic Grey item. I embossed the green scalloped piece using my Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder. I also heat embossed the sentiment. As mentioned above I used Basic Grey Fruitcake paper. The background paper is Tidings and the greenish paper behind the image is the flip side - Wintermint.
2RB Banana Split Sunday - Easy as 1-2-3 - One ribbon, two stamps, three dewdrops or gems. I think the 1 and 2 are pretty obvious. I don't own any dew drops so I used gems.
Pile it On - Punches plus combine with at least one other challenge. The only punch I used is the Martha Stewart Doily border punch -hope that's acceptable.
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Distressing. I sanded the embossing on the scalloped piece as well as the edges of the mat behind the image and the scallop behind the sentiment. I also inked the image and sentiment with Vintage Photo distress ink.
