Hello! Today's card has my very first attempt at no-line coloring!
I just love this stamp, and it was so much fun to color! (Although Jeff said that her hair looks like a beard and now it's really hard to look at her and not see the beard!) I stamped it in Antique Linen Distress ink on Neenah Cardstock and then colored it with Copics. I die cut it with the Pierced Fishtail Tags from My Favorite Things. (I love those dies, I think I need all of their pierced and stitched STAX dies. NEED.) I wrapped some twine around the bottom and added a bow; then I die cut some gray felt with the Small Scalloped Border die from Papertrey Ink and tucked that behind my tag. I trimmed my tag down to fit on my card front and then set the whole thing aside. I cut some plum cardstock to a card base and stamped the argyle stamp (still one of my favorites!) on the card base in purple and white ink. I adhered my tag to the front and then cut a white cardstock panel for the inside of the card. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink and then adhered the panel to the inside. I stamped leaf on the envelope in purple inks to finish the whole thing up!
I'm in full Christmas prep mode over here. I'm working on presents for parents, planning other presents, filling up December's calendar with Christmas activities and Elf on the Shelf plans, making Christmas cards, and stressing about my December Daily albums I want to complete from years gone by! Christmas planning makes me happy :)
I should be able to throw the last page or two for my 2012 December Daily album together this week and then I'll film a video of the whole album together!
Have a great day!
