Hello, hello! Today I'd like to share a couple of cards that were featured on Michele's blog last week.
First up is one of Stephanie Ackerman's Winter Kids named Ben. After coloring him with Copics, I thought he looked a little "flat", so I added some shading with Prismacolor pencils.
I went around the edge of the card with a Sharpie, and drew the wonky lines alá Julie Ebersole that she shared here. It was a lot of fun and adds to the playfulness of the image. Thanks, Julie! After stamping the sentiment, I added some gemstones which look like Christmas lights when the card moves.
Next up is a card using Mistletoe Ball from carolyn draws. I colored the image with Copics and drew those wonky lines again.
I showed this card to my hubby and asked him what it was. Staring intently, he asked me if the "ribbon is supposed to be like that" and I said yes, I didn't DRAW the image, I just COLORED it.
It took a while for him to answer until I pointed to the sentiment and he said, "Oh!! Mistletoe!" Yay for him. Little does he know, it's his Christmas card and he'll be seeing it again in a few weeks.
