There is a new challenge over at Christmas Card Throwdown. Now before any of you panic, or think some how you missed challenge number 11, you haven’t. That challenge (for reasons that are a really long story) will follow this one…so without further ado, we give you challenge 12.
This challenge will be a stash challenge…looking for you to use up some of those gems, pearls or sequins that you have been hoarding. I am guilty of this too…holding onto sparkly little accents, especially sequins. I don’t make that many shaker cards, so I only use a couple of sequins at a time, thus the drawer full of pretty little disks.
For today’s design, I pulled out a digital stamp from Bugaboo, and colored it up with my prisma colored pencils. I pulled out some pale blue printed paper and matted the image with it, and adhered it all to an A2 frame. Finally, I pulled out a packet of sequins from Craftin Desert Divas and added a few, trying to get them to look a little like sparkling snowflakes from the sky.
Now, because I am a dunce, I forgot to pack my holiday sentiments, so I had to wing this one and hand write in the greeting. I have never been much of a fan of my handwriting, but this at least doesn’t look much like my normal chicken scratch.
I can’t wait to see what you design using those stashed away accents.
