I would like to thank everyone over at C.R.AF.T Challenge for selecting my card in Top 3 in their Christmas in July Challenge. I really appreciate your support and love joining in their fun challenges.
I was thrilled today to have my card chosen in the Top 3 over at Kickstart Christmas Challenge! Thanks so much to the team over at this fun challenge. I don’t make too many Christmas cards so was thrilled to win a spot!! Be sure to check out their blog. “A gorgeous monochrome masterpiece.”
Hello and welcome
As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome
Prize – a $20 voucher!
Today I am using a new to me stamp PB – Waddling by. I loved it the first time I saw it. I also felt it was perfect for the Monochrome theme, as the majority of the image would be black and white shades anyway! 🙂
After stamping the image, it was watercoloured using Distress ink. (So easy – only one colour!!)
I continued slowly building up the details on the image by varying the strength of the ink washes.
The panel was then cut using MFT – Die-namics – Wonky Squares Stax and layered on black before adding it to the card front.
The sentiment tag is from Mama Elephant – Sew Fancy Creative Dies. I rather liked the details on the little tag as it gave some interest to an otherwise fairy plain card. The sentiment is from the PB stamp set.
I then added faux stitching on the tag with a black pen.
The tag was then added to the card using raised tape.
I hope this happy little penguin brings you a smile. I think he’d be fun for a birthday card bry changing the decorations on the parcel.
