Well, it's time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Blog and our topic is CHRISTMAS IS COMING! This beautiful image is from our sponsors The Paper Shelter.
My little image's name is Yep, I have my methods. Click on the link to the left and see how he looks all colored and the background color, too! And you can color him yourself with the black and white option. My last posted Paper Shelter card was Fantasy on Ice and it was wonderful to use the already beautifully colored image. This week I sat and enjoyed coloring Santa myself. To put the card in perspective, this card is 6"x6".
My papers are from Doodlebug and I made the poinsettias with my Nellie Snellen poinsettia punches and a brad in the center. I used a Cheery Lynn die for the vines. The sentiment is one of many that I don't know the brand and I stamped it in green. The red metallic round brads in the corners are actually stick-ons!
I colored my image with Copics and used some 3d white paint and then sprinkled WOW white glitter on top of it, and then I used clear Rock Glitter by Ranger for Santa's beard. I used Star Dust Stickles all over the balloon. For those of you who dislike glitter...there's nothing wrong with your house looking sparkling. I think it takes the attention off the little fuzzy kitty hair balls rolling around.
Something to note about our challenge: if you enter, and get picked, you win 3 stamps....and that's a sweet prize. But, if you enter, get picked and used a Paper Shelter image, you rock! Look below:
You can more than triple your winnings using a Paper Shelter image in the challenge. Check out the images and get one that is versatile for you!
