Mystery Swap For December

It is finally time that we can post our Mystery Swap images!   Yay!!!

A group of fine girls on the SCS site are in a mystery swap.  We swap cards every other month.  One person sends out an image and can send out a little sumpin' sumpin' with the image too.  From there, we all create a card with those same items.  It is fun to see how different everyone's cards can be from the same basics. 

This swap our fabulous hostess April, sent out an image from The Greeting Farm, Anya in the Spotlight.   I colored her with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils.

There was a little sumpin' sumpin' too.   It was decorative tape.   It was an interesting element to work with.   I think I read somewhere it was MURDEROUS tape!   LOL   It was a little challenging, but fun to work with an new product.  I was not sure how much tape was on the roll, so decided to put the tape on cardstock and then used a punch to create shapes.   It actually gave the tape a little thickness with the cardstock underneath and I was able to place the punches where I needed.

Here is the card that I sent in for the swap.  I hope that the girls like it!  Thanks for taking a peek.
