Hello all! So I know I've been a little crafty awol lately...sorry...my kids seem to be warping me of my creative juices. I'm soo looking forward to school starting! Anyway, I really need to get an early start on my Christmas cards...so they actually get sent out, lol. I have to make about 50 cards every year, so the earlier I get started the better and there seem to be lots of Christmas in July challenges going on...yay for me!
Here's a close-up of Tilda. You can't really tell in the pic, but her background isn't white, it's kind of a yellowish hue I made with chalks. I've also sprayed it with gold glimmer...I have a pic below you can see it in.
The flowers are Wild Orchid and the pearl sprays are from Hobby Lobby...colored with copics to match.
This ornament is from Inkadinkado...stamped on craft paper and sprayed with gold glimmer mist.
Here's the close-up of the glimmer around Tilda.
Well, I think that about does it. Sorry I have once again forgotten to photograph my copics...if you wanna know anything, please ask. The papers are K&Company...really lovin this paper pad! The background papers are just craft cardstock. The laces are from Hobby Lobby.
Updated to add: I've had some comments about the color I've used for her dress, so I thought I'd tell you how I made it! I started by coloring the whole dress in E53...was going for a burgundy...next I colored it with R29, 27, &24 in the same fashion I usually would(darkest to lightest). Decided I needed to go darker so I overlapped the red(where it would be darkest) with E33. Then, I just colored(with the correct shade of red) over any spots that looked too brown and layering more with E53 as well until I was happy with the results. If you try this remember that if the ink starts to look glossy, you need to stop and let it dry a bit before you continue. If it's coming heavy thru the other side of your cardstock you won't have too much more you can do. Hope this helps any who are interested!
