Did I Just Make a Christmas Card?
Egads!! This didn't start out to be a Christmas card, but when I showed it to DH, we both kind of said it at the same time, "it looks Christmas-y". So I added a holiday sentiment and sealed the deal!
This is for this weekends Inspiration Challenge that I'm hosting over on SCS. Hope you can join me! The web store is awesome!! I love it!! It's called "Georgie Love" and it's a source for Australian artists in Victoria to promote and sell their hand-made works to the world.
I chose this "Jenny Lamp" for my inspiration piece. The leafy vine on the lamp shade is similar to a stamp from SU's "Paradise" stamp set that happened to be out on my desk so I used it. The colors were even close to the new colors introduced by SU this year, (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE by the way!!) so it was a lot of fun to get to use them all on this card!
I used Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Wild Wassabi and Cherry Cobbler markers to cover the stamp each time and stamped onto glossy CS. It's a pretty small stamp so it didn't take much to color it each time.
The bottom half of the card front is Crumb Cake CS and the sentiment is a SU Chit Chat rub on. It's layered with dimensionals onto Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso. The finishing touch is a 5/8" grosgrain ribbon in Real Red.
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
