I colored my image with Copics, putting a tiny bit of shine with Stickles on each rose and her lips. The card was pieced together with leftover cardstock and patterned papers. I added some coordinating roses from Michael's and a couple leaves, one gold-embossed, and finished with some ribbon and a feather.
Joan's Garden challenge. They ask that you use a DIE, a CHRISTMAS SENTIMENT, some kind of LIGHT, and the colors RED and WHITE. I found a Whiff of Joy image called "Willow with Lantern" with which to play, and believe it or not, I made MY FIRST CHRISTMAS CARD this year!!
I colored with Copics: R05,29; YG03,05 and E08,15. I added some shine with Stickles. I framed her in a diecut frame of deep red with a white background, added a cardstock sticker sentiment, and added to the whole shimmery effect with pearlized snowflakes.
I think with this card I have shaken the dust off my craft table and any remnants of Halloween cardmaking. I need to send those spooky creations to my friends before the holiday passes! I still want to make a few Thanksgiving cards, but Christmas has definitely stirred my muse.
Whatever holiday you're crafting for, have fun and don't forget to check out Joan's Garden for this week's challenge!
