Sweet Ava Christmas

Happy Monday morning to you all!  I had a little bit of time on my hands this morning and so I thought to myself, should I spend my extra time playing around on facebook or should I make a card?!!   Sorry facebook!  I chose to make a card and I had the perfect inspiration for it.  I used to do the challenges on Split Coast Stampers all the time! In fact, that's where I grew as a stamper and learned so many of the techniques  I use in my card making today!  So I headed on over this morning to see what the technique challenge was all about.  Oh my word!  Talk about a great challenge!  The challenge is to color your image using a lead pencil.  What an amazing look it gives to an image!  I'm so glad I tried it!  Here's my card using Ava Christmas Sitter from Bugaboo Stamps.

Using the instructions found here, I printed the image on white card stock but softened it by using my quick print mode on my printer.  All I had to do was color it in using a #2 pencil coloring darker in shaded areas and lighter in areas where there would be more light.  The DP is Chill Out Winter from ki memories and Best Occasions Mixed Media Pack.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado not sure of the name of the stamp.

Other challenges:
Paper Sundaes-Lots Of Layers
Paper Crafting Journeys- Punches and Dies
Hiding In My Craft Room-Pink

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!  TTFN

Stamping Hugs,
