It’s time for another Sparkle Creations challenge! This card wraps up my guest spot with Sparkle and her team and I am so sad to be leaving. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and the images are so fantastic! SO much fun to color!
The challenge this week is to use Kim’s sketch and it’s a great one. For this card I tried to go a bit more CAS. It’s a real challenge for me to use a colored image on a CAS card for some reason but I’ve really been wanting to push myself that direction lately so as I was looking at this image trying to decide what to make I thought it would be perfect. Now, I would love to say that because it’s CAS with no designer paper that it was done really fast… WRONG. I think this took me longer without the dp than with but I still really like it.
For my card I used Elf Oliver stamped on PTI Stamper’s Select White and colored him with Copics. I added a bit of Liquid Applique to his fluffy collar and sleeves and colored the gift with a Sakura Stardust pen. The main image panel was cut out and cropped with a Spellbinders Classic Circle Large die and outlined with Fine point Sharpie pen. The same goes for the Hero Arts sentiment. To finish up I added baker’s twine in red and green as well as three black rhinestones. To add some dimension I popped the image and sentiment up on foam tape.
I hope you have time to join in on the challenge sometime this week or next! Please visit the Sparkle Creations Team!
