CCT # 36 Red and Green....Tilda caught peeking,giggle!!!
Here is another card, from my Christmas card making marathon, last weekend. It just so happens to meet the required challenge of Red and Green for challenge # 36 at Cute Card Thursday! Although, the embossed strip is look more grey than green in this pic. I guess it is a grayish green and not a really a true Christmas green...but I think it still works!!!
Well, I haven't bought any of the new Magnolia Christmas stamps and my winter stamp club set hasn't arrived yet. Oh how I wish, I could have every new adorable Magnolia stamp that comes out but, unfortunately, I'm not independently wealthy, ha! So, I guess I need to try and use some restraint, lol!!! I thought I could still use some of my other Magnolia stamps on my Christmas cards, if I just got a little creative!
So, I thought laughing Tilda looks like she just got caught peeking at her Christmas gifts. The Kelly Panacci Christmas stamp set from last year had the perfect sentiment to go with this idea.
I used a QK embossing die called curls on the middle strip of paper. I sanded the paper a little and added some metallic rub-ons to it too.I coloured Tilda with my Copic and I also used my Twinkling H20's to add a little more depth and a subtle twinkle to the image. I am really loving how the H2O's look over the Copics....so glad I gave this a try,YAY!!!!
Well, it is another quick post tonight!!! I am really trying not to ramble on endless and state the obvious, in a attempt to keep my posts a little shorter!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek, *giggle*!
