Well we’re back from the Christmas Holidays and hoping that you all had a wonderful time with family and friends. My Christmas holiday was quiet being spent mostly with just my immediate family…a nice change to the usual hustle and bustle.
But now it’s time to get back into the swing of things, and to start things off at Pattie’s Creations, our new challenge for the New Year is Fun in the Snow. I used an image that I got to name…how cool is that? Pattie has these name the image contests quite frequently and the prize is the image! But I am getting off the topic…the image that I used is called Casa de Cardinal.
I made a winter scene for it by using my SU Lovely as a tree set and stamping for my background. I cut it out using my Nestibilities Labels One Small. I took my Versa Mark pen and coloured the area under the trees and added Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder by The Stamper’s Edge to make the snow under the trees. I used my white gel pen for adding snow to the trees and then coloured the sky with my SU Pastels.
I coloured the image using my Crayola Pencil Crayons and Staedtler Pencil crayons with oms. I used a small black flat backed pearl for my Cardinal’s eye. I punched out small red snowflakes to glue onto my white brad snowflakes and then added a white flat backed pearl to the centers. The cs is by SU and the dp is from my stash. The sentiment is from DeeDee’s Digitals. I cut the sentiment out and then put it in the center one of my new Nestibilities Floral Ovals. I added stickles to the branch, around the image, on the poinsettia (by Recollections) and sentiment.
Now it’s your turn to show us what you’ve got. At Pattie’s Creations it is our rule that there must be a stamp on it, either digital or rubber. For all of the rest of the rules and prizes, head on over to Pattie’s Creations Challenge Blog. And while you’re there, check out the incredible creations my team mates have done.
Thanks for looking….Charlene
