The latest theme over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog is "Christmas in July"! I've been meaning to do one of their challenges for ages, so this gave me a great excuse to use my previously un-inked Noelle and O Joy stamps! (And yet another excuse to play with my Copic markers! LOL!). Here is my card:
First I stamped "Noelle" and "O Joy" next to each other onto white card with black ink, then I coloured the pair with Copic markers. They looked a little strange floating in mid air, so I decided to give them a floor to stand on. I drew it in myself after having seen this great tutorial on how to do it. Mine's not fabulous, but pretty good for my first attempt I think! :) The plain white wall looked a little stark, so I coloured it with the E000 Copic marker to soften it up a little. It's very close to the colour of the walls in my house!
Of course, I couldn't resist adding a little bling with my Clear Spica pen, so I glittered up their outfits:
I inked around the edges of the picture with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, then matted it onto Candy Apple Bazzill cardstock. The card base is a really cool tie-dyed looking piece of handmade paper that I've had for ages! Was great to be able to use up something from my stash! :)
Don't they make a cute couple:
I love how they're all dressed up to party, but look beaten from the season! LOL!! It definitely gets that way sometimes!
Thanks for dropping by!
