I wanted to make a card using the sketch over at the Freshly Made blog and also using Jenny's challenge of Patterned Paper at Wee Memories. And what better time than now to get started on some Christmas cards.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; Jillibean Soutp (Christmas Eve Chowder)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL462; CL343; CL459)
Other: Stickles; Dimensional Squares; MFT Notebook Edge die
I pretty much followed the sketch using two little stars to represent those two circles on the left side. I know that they are rather small but I wanted the centre image to be the focal point. I popped up that ornament, which is coloured with Copics, and I also just added a bit of stickles to the centre.
I think I need to go and work on my creativity a little bit, not sure what's going on with me right now, but it's just not "flowing"!
It looks like it's going to be another beautiful day here in Houston, ok, it will still be hot, but a different kind of hot, and I suppose I am in high spirits because my 10 mile run yesterday morning went way better than I had expected! Even though every single muscle in my upper body hurts right now from working out with weights for an hour and a half on Friday! Maybe I overdid it a bit, but I just felt that I needed to work really hard and get myself back into the swing of things after our trip away!
