Hello, hope everyone is doing well. Honey and I are dragging. We guess it's been the weather. It has rained and rained and rained the last few days. We have definitely needed it, but it does play havoc with us. Honey's been dizzy and cranky because he's dizzy, poor thing. The barometric pressure changes affect us both negatively, we'll just have to wait it out.
I occupied my time making this Christmas card using an image from Power Poppy's Cuddle in the Cabin Digital set. I colored it with a combination of Distress and Zig Clean Color Markers, colored pencils, various gel pens and Posca paint pens. 6x6 textured blue Bazzill card base, TH Distress silver foil card and some very old Sonburn patchwork patterned Christmas paper that I'd been hoarding for over a decade. I just love these shades of blue, they speak to my soul. The Stamplorations and Papertrey Ink sentiments were stamped with Versamark and white heat-embossed. The 2 dark blue panels were edged with a silver Posca paint pen. I used oval and scalloped oval dies on the focal image that was printed on Springhill Digital card. I added a metallic silver weave ribbon and punched snowflakes dotted with Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen. Metallic gel pens and a white Posca paint pen were used to "color" the snow and moon and front porch light. I die cut a Crafters Companion reindeer out of DCWV silver glitter card and backed it with 2 more white layers for strength before adhering.
I chose Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2's current challenge sketch #234 for my layout design, but I took some liberties with it to make it work for me, namely flipping it horizontally. Otherwise, I followed it faithfully. Showing sketch and card together here so you can see.
Here's the shine angle shot. This girl's on fire! 😍😊
