Oh, I wish you could run right over to see this in person! The red is so much “pinker” richer IRL! Always a challenge to capture these creations, isn’t it?!!! Over at CCEE Stampers Challenge Blog they want to see a Winter Scene… well, I could hear that calling my name out loud and clear! lol Using the October Afternoon paper with the houses and trees… aaaaahhhh, I had to cover up the cutest teeny snowman, maybe he’s showing in one of my previous cards where I used this paper… I’ll have to find and link back…get back on track! Anyway, I thought this CC Designs tree picked up the trees from the paper perfectly… it’s HERE. I inked it up trying not to get the moon.. I wiped off the ink b/4 I stamped. Here’s another card that I made with the tree…it’s one of my all time fave Winter creations… it’s HERE. Penelope and Juniper are from the Sweet November artist Amy Young by CC Designs… they’re HERE. Over at Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog they want us to us say, “let it snow”!!! I say, let it snow, on paper only! hahahahaha Over at A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge Blog they want to see snow and or snowflakes… got it covered! This “let it SNOW” sentiment is from Amy R’s new set, Merry and Bright by DD Designs…it’s HERE.
the rest of the story…. heart chipboard from Heidi Swapp…holly is a Punch Bunch punch, punched three times, glued together, colored and frosted with Frosted Lace Stickles, HERE…berries from M’s… pattern paper is October Afternoon, I love this company!
I stamped the tree with Memento Rich Cocoa ink HERE… shaded a little on the left side with copic sketch markers, HERE, E43 & 44…then I colored all around the tree with seven different colors to get it to match the paper!!!! EEK! I started with BG10 and cannot remember what came next!!! I remember E50 and BG0000 but it seems like I added some other green and blue too! sorry about that! I know, I’ll be mad at myself when I want to do it again too! I am too free-spirited when I color! lol Juniper is easy… E40’s… chirp, chirp! Penelope’s hair is the E30’s…jacket BG72, 75, 79…face/legs E000, 00, 01, 21…cheeks R30 & R11…boots cool grays…the word snow BG93, 96, 99. Polar White Flower soft on her muff and head band, it’s HERE. Frosted Lace Stickles on the tree, around the oval, on the ground and on Penelope! Cardstock is Prism and Stampin Up.
