As soon as I saw this card that Kristina Werner created for her Holiday Card Series 2014, I knew I wanted to create something similar. So here it is:
Since I didn't (yet) have the image stamps that Kristina was using, I looked for something similar and found these cute Xmas critters in the Tiddly Inks online store. I did manipulate the digital images to remove the black borders around the images. I decided to use my new Spectrum Noir colouring pencils, since water colouring these images still seemed too daunting. Colouring with colouring pencils and the white blender pencil turned out to be fairly easy and fun. I also like that each set contains 3 shades of each colour, so that there's no guess work involved. The sentiment stamp that both Kristina and I used is from a set by Simon Says Stamp.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
I guess we all have plenty of NBUS (hmm, maybe I should change the name of my blog to Marianne's cards and lots of never before used schtuff LOL) and the lovely Darnell is challenging us all to start using it.
It so happens that Darnell is also guest designing at CASology, where this week's theme is ... NBUS
