Holiday Cheer

I'm on a roll, again! Watch out! LOL

Here's another project for the 12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug. This one is for Day 5, in which we were challenged to use gold on our project.

This one is for my husband.

I apologize for the shadow on the card. I took several pics and this is the best I could get, due to all the bright gold on the card, I think.

I used the PWC183 Sketch at Paper Pretties for my card layout and went with another Christmas card, in non traditional colors. My image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is colored with Promarkers. I've used a few different colors to color her skin. Since she's partially sitting inside the glass, I've tried to reflect it in the coloring, by making the parts in the glass lighter. This is my first attempt at this, so I hope it looks okay. The image is punched with a scalloped circle, then I added black sponging to try and tone down the white and make the colors match. I used gold metallic twine from my stash. I added glitter and sparkle to the glass, to make it shine, with a clearstar gelly roll pen.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  23. Gorgeous card hun, I love those Stella images and the gold looks fab.
    I find if you take the piccy with the camera higher than the card at a slight downwards angle that helps with the shine as the flash isn't bouncing back off it. Hope this helps and makes sense :)
