I love the fireplace. I colored it all in using Prismacolored Pencils and OMS and then cut the fire and wood section of another copy. I used pencils, plus Acrylics plus H2Os on the fire. I think it looks great...I can almost feel it`s heat! I attached it to the original stamp with dimensionals. I also used the gold spica pen on the candles and the frame around the fire pit.
I looked up some challenges before I started this card and I followed the rules for two challenges. The Papertake Weekly Challenge called for stitches either real or faux. My stitches would be the faux variety. I created them using a piecer and a white gel pen. I did these faux stictches around the plaid section.
The second challenge was from Tilda & Company number 33. In this challenge you had to use hands so I created a clock out of Grungeboard using a circle from the Basic pkg. and hinges from the Elements pkg. I cut the bottom off of the hinges to create the clock hands. I used Distress inks Walnut stain to color the clock. I used a gold gel pen to mark in the numbers.
Many children...me included, can hardly wait for Santa on Christmas Day. Ì`ll save this card for my neice who loves and waits for Christmas.
Have a wonderful day
