I'm here with another Christmas card, which features another first for me. You'll all know by now that I don't colour backgrounds. Maybe a little shading here or there, or a pale outline around the image, but never al full-on coloured background.
Until now. You see, this gorgeous LOTV stamp is obviously a night-time one, so leaving the background white seemed wrong. So I thought "In for a penny" and all that, and went to work with the midnight blue!
Now, before you think that I was super brave, I scanned and printed my coloured image, and did the background on there first to make sure it wasn't going to look horrible! lol.
I was pleased with the result, so did the same with the original and then paired it up with some Dovecraft papers
I was somewhat annoyed with the fact that the white opal liquid pearls are more silver than white, but at least I know now and can use something else next time!
I finished off with one of the new LOTV Christmas sentiment stamps and a lovely red satin ribbon from Buckwell Craft Supplies.
Oh, and believe it or not I used 27!! Promarkers for this one (not counting the blender, lol). And I remember the days when I was impressed when I used 15!
Now I was hoping that since I used several snippets, Di would allow me to come and play at the Playground this week. I'd been meaning to for soooo long, so here it finally is, lol.
I'd also like to enter the Whimsy Stamps "Anything Goes" challenge this month.
And could I please enter this one into the LOTV "Anything goes" challenge too? Thanking you muchly.
Hope your Mondays are being kind to you all!
