Over at StampNation today the latest challenge is up. It's an Either or Both challenge.
Option 1: Critter Challenge- Use some sort of bird, animal, creature or critter on your card.
Ideas: Deer, Mouse, Cardinal, Fox, etc.
Option 2: Chalkboard Technique: Use a piece of black cardstock with white or colored ink for a chalkboard technique.
This first card is for the Option 1: I used a bird
I pulled out my Birdcage and Bird die from Tim Holtz and die cut it with a some white card. I used red Distress inks to sponge the bird. The PP is from Rosie's Studio "Home for the Holidays" I trimmed around the holly with my craft knife and slid the cage and bird underneath. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is white embossed. I stamped and die cut the holly leaves and berries (SOA Candy Cane Lane) and added a bow die from Impression Obsession.
And just because I could... I made another card using Option - Chalkboard technique.
A real CAS card. I took a piece of some black cardstock and white embossed the Hero Arts Vintage Poinsettia and matched it with a sentiment from SOA Candy Cane Lane. I used a Faber Castell white pen to smudge around the flower and the sentiment. I added some white enamel liquid dots.
Hope you week is doing well. Tomorrow is my work Christmas lunch...we are heading about 45 minutes away at a pub out in the country. Should be a fun afternoon.
