Can you believe it is almost June already? At the present time, I have 8 made towards my 100 needed. Most of my cards are handed out. Only about 40 are mailed. I figure I have 28 weeks left to making Christmas cards. So I don't go crazy at the end of the year, I need to make 3+ cards a week. Think I can do it? I am going to give it my best shot!
One way to get on track is to get back with the challenges from 52 Christmas Card Throwndown challenges. I will start with the challenges in January and work my way through to get caught up. Each week is a different but same challenges.
Week 1 is always a sketch
Week 2 is always about color
Week 3 is always about a Theme they choose
Week 4 is some type of Technique or Stash
So here I go....Week 1 challenge-a Sketch
Today I used a stamp from Stamping Bella called Christmas Mouse. I stamped the mouse twice and cut one out after I colored it with my Copics. I love using a glue to prop up the image slightly to get a 3D effect for the image. Sometimes the dimensionals are just too thick for me. The one I use is a Universal Transparant glue from Olba Company.
The background was made using a stencil and 2 colors of Nuvo glimmer paste...Pink Opal and Garnet Red.
Well that is one done for the week. Off to make another card. I need a birthday card next.
Have a great crafty day!
