And that means a couple things...this year is going by WAY TOO FAST, and we are only 54 days away from Christmas 2016! Oh, and one more thing...it's time for another great challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra! Here is my design team card:
As you all know, for our first-of-the-month submissions we are required to use a Bugaboo image. This one is from Jodi's newest release, and is called BUGSNOWMAN004. I have to admit, I fell in *love* with this guy as soon as I saw him. I HAD to have him; he is just perfect!! *SQUEEEE!!*
This past weekend, we went to Michael's to see if any Christmas paper was out yet...it took me awhile to find it, but find it I did! I love how Recollections has a bunch of 8.5 x 11 cardstock packs to choose from. Lemme tell you, the choice was difficult, but in the end I chose the Winter Frost pack. (I may have to go back and get a few more--he he!) It has the most gorgeous light blue snowflake patterned cardstock in it that I must
hoard stock up on. I used some of that here. I distressed the edges with Tumbled Glass ink. The cardstock panel running through the middle was embossed with a snowflake ef by the Paper Studio, and also inked with Tumbled Glass. Hard to see though, since I made my image panel larger than I had intended to. I colored this guy up with a combo of Sharpies, Copics, and Prismacolor markers. Added some Crystal Stickles to the snow and snowflakes, and the image panel was done.
I followed the sketch over at Paper Play Sketches:
I thought this adorable guy would do well as center stage in this sketch.
