This week over at the Paper Cupcake's challenge blog Debbie Schneider brings us this weeks challenge. She wanted us to make a Christmas card and use non-traditional colors on it. I chose a funny image "A Taste of Christmas" by Paper Cupcakes with purple and brown as my non-traditional colors. This image and sentiment cracks me up every time I look at it, kind of off the wall, but silly non the less. This was really quite simple. I cut my snowflake out in layers from my cricut using the the Winter Wonderland cartridge. I then added the white with my glaze pen and then some Stickles. I think my snowflake is lovely in the purple and brown and so much more prettier in real life. I couldn't find any purple paper that I really liked to go with this so I dotted my purple card stock with white dots using my glaze pen as well. I am not sure who makes the pp in the background it was in my scraps, but it looks like paint flaking off a wooden board to me or if you would crackle something. I then added Stickles to the snowman and snow and then some crystal rhinestones and called it clean, simple, fun and complete. I also colored this image with both my colored pencils and my Bic Mark-its.
I have to laugh at my colored image since I drew it, I just now noticed that I drew one mitten with the thumb up and the other with the thumb down, geeze, why did I do that I wonder? And why did I not notice it while I was coloring it or before now as well as before I turned it into a digi? I will have to go back and fix that image now or otherwise it will drive me nuts!
Well, I colored about 6 images up the other evening after the basketball games and while watching a movie so I am excited to get them onto cards now. So, I hope I can get them completed as well as a few scrapbook pages for our ETG this month.
The days are flying fast now that November and basketball is here which means cheering for Morgan, which means busy for mom as well. I am looking forward to the holidays and hoping to get my shopping done early; well we will see on that, but one can hope can't they? So, thanks for stopping by if you did and please know how wonderfully delighted I am when I get to read any comments left for me. So make it a good week and embrace the joy of the day!
