Blessed Nativity - This week at Sew Many Challenges, the challenge is anything goes, so I finally got to use this image. I have been wanting to do it for a while, so yea me!
I decided to go shabby chic and used a Tim Holtz paper pad. I used a spool of lace to and my pink ATG to hold the lace in place as I ruffled it. I used an ultra fine glitter and then my Viva Decor pen for the pearls.
My image is colored with Copics and again I used my ultra fine glitter. I was asked about my fold, but it is not really a fold. My DP was double sided, so I cut a half circle and then folded my card. I have photographed the inside so you can see. Really I was just taking a cheap skate way of following a sketch.
My second card uses the Friday Freebie that you can get here. My DP is from Target's dollar spot last year. My baker's twine is homemade. My friend Milly came over and it was her idea to seperate a thread from a length of cotton yarn, color it, then retwist it. It took us a few tries, but we finally got it to work and I must say that I am pleased with the result and it was so much cheaper than real baker's twine.
My sentiment is by Inkadinkado. The pin is from a pin swap that I recently participated in. It was a lot of fun and I got some amazing pins. The swap was divided by holidays and I signed up for the Christmas swap.
My image was colored with Copic's and then coated with MS ultra fine glitter. I added a little bit of Polar white flower soft to the snowman's hat.
I hope all of you will join in on our Anything Goes challenge at Sew Many Challenges.
