Hello! Welcome to day 13 of my Christmas Cards series. I'm actually going to stick in another card (non-Christmas) with it because it's inspiration from the same sketch.
I used the awesome sketch from Friday Sketchers - what a fun sketch! And I got a lot of help from Papertrey Ink. I was browsing around looking to spend money that I don't have and just happened onto the Try It Now paper section of their store. You get these digi paper swatches and they were perfect for the "quilted" part of this sketch.
I used a beautiful angel image from Nutcrafters and she's colored with Copics. I also (not sure the camera picked it up) colored in her halo with a Versamarker and then add gold embossing powder. I also colored her wings with the same marker and added Iridescent Ice embossing powder. She's quite lovely in person. Then sentiment is computer generated and I have to say, I've had a hard time getting the song out of my head since I made this.
For the embellishments, I colored a satin flower using Olive Copic. Then I punched out the flowers (Spring Bouquet punch) and inked the edges to create the poinsettias. The centers are 1/8" circle punch dots.
Now for the other card:
I actually made this card first and posted it in my SCS gallery. But I decided since I used the sketch again, it would be OK to post it here [now]. This image is from Pixie Dust Studio and I entered in their 2nd challenge which is a color challenge: Gold, Brown and Cream. The paper swatches are again from the Try It Now section of Papertrey Ink. The deer is colored with Copics, the sentiment computer generated and the final touch, the gold ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed my cards and that you'll come back tomorrow for day 14.
