It's December 1st, can you believe it?! Where has this year gone? Flying by it seems. Here is the quick story behind this card....now why does this type of thing always happen to me?....
A friend on SCS opened her annual Penny Black & Whipper Snapper card swap for the holiday. I do not happen to have any of those particular stamps. So, in my efforts of trying to be crafty and a planner, I joined an image swap on SCS earlier this year and chose a Whipper Snapper Christmas image. I was in! I was locked and loaded, ready to rock the swap. Oh yeah, until I found out that the image was not Whipper Snapper?! What?! That darn lady I received them from said that they were. Well, a gracious girl in the swap sent me some images. It was actually really fun, as it was a surprise as to what I was going to work with.
Below is the card that I sent in for the swap. I am told it is Whipper Snapper and even if it is not, its gunna be! LOL
I started to color the image with Copic Markers, until the two pens ran out of ink (Please note: I am not batting a thousand on this project). I had to improvise with Prisma Pencils. I used various Stickles for the jingle bells and lights. I sponged the rest of the image with different inks.
The white cardstock is Conqueror CX22 Diamond White. The layers are Stampin' UP! Ruby Red and Bashful Blue. The DP is from Making Memories, Deck the Halls. The ribbon is Stampin' UP! Old Olive.
I thought the image was really cute and am thankful for a thoughtful girl sending me some images.
Have a great day!
