Scribbles Designs Challenge #24 Midway Point


Can you believe it?!  The new year is here and what better way to kick start it on my blog, than with the midway for the latest Scribbles Designs Challenge. 

There are two whole weeks left for you to come on over and enter. In case you've missed it, the theme this time around for Challenge #24, is
'Tis the Season!Even though the holidays are coming to an end, it is still a great time for continuing with our holiday inspired picture inspiration challenge. The great thing about pictures is that one person can be moved by one aspect and another individual may see something totally different. So, whether you are inspired by the colours, the shapes, or the objects themselves within this particular picture, it doesn't matter. This challenge it is all in the eye of the beholder.

General Information: 
  • For the midway, I thought I would show you a decoration that I made, using one of my favourite SD sentiments.  The front and back are designed the exact same way.
Digital Sentiment Details:
  • Season's Greetings Quote:  This great sentiment is actually part of a set.  You can find it in the store by clicking on the name of the image or the watermark below.  This sentiment was re-coloured digitally and printed out twice.
  • The green hanging ribbon, the green metallic stars, the white gemstone star and the felt items are all Crafts brand and were purchased at Dollarama. 
Cricut Cartridge:
  • The base for the decoration (two copies) was cut using the Elegant Edges cartridge.
Paper Products:  
  • Sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • Decoration base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, red.
Digital Paper Products:  
  • I didn't want to just print the sentiment on white so I layered it right on top of one of my papers before printing.  I chose something with a subtle pattern so that the sentiment would stand out.  Unfortunately, the detail of the paper didn't photograph all that well; although, you can see it better in the top picture.  

Here is a shot of it in a more natural environment.  Unfortunately the flash washed it out a bit which is why I also included the pic of it above...
