Here is the image I got to work with for this special release...
I'm such a fan of the Cutie Bugs so it was an honour to be able to create a Christmas card with one of them. If you click on the watermark, it will take you to the Christmas section of the store where you can find this image, along with all the other ones that have been released so far this week.
Before I show you my card, it is important to note the following...
- While I missed the deadline for the challenge itself, I did use a sketch from Sketch Saturday. I really love this sketch and you're actually going to see it again in the next couple days when I post one of my progressive challenge cards. I just flipped the location of the small pennant.
- YaY, another card added to the Christmas card pot which reminds me, I'm rather behind in getting the winner announcement out for The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up. Hopefully by next week, I'll get the chance to pull it off.Christmas Card Count to date: 24
Digital Image Details:
- Cutie Bug Christmas: This image is currently available in the FBD store in the Christmas section. You can find it by clicking on the image watermark above.
- This image has been coloured using a combination of techniques. Parts were coloured digitally (see disclaimer above) and then the image was printed out and the remaining parts were coloured by hand using Copic markers. Digital credits include:
Digital Sentiment Details:
- I am so very pleased to finally have the opportunity to use one of the many stamps I have from Limited Runs. Nikki has such awesome images and I am lucky enough to own several of them. Unfortunately, I haven't had much of a chance to actually use them so I am pleased to be able to do so now. This fabulous image and sentiment combined is one I picked up in a win over at Limited Runs. I've used the pre-coloured version to save some time. Clicking on the watermark will take you to the Christmas section of the store where you can find this wonderful image.
- Card, image and sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
- I've used one of my own digital papers for this card. It is from my Holiday Hoopla Kit.
