Believe in Yourself by Stampers Delights for Winter Wonderland on the 2nd of July, 2021

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Stacey!
Welcome to our seventh challenge for 2021.

Our theme is:

Christmas Music or Songs

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme of Christmas Birds, which means that we want to see big and/or small birds on your projects.

We have Stampers Delights as our sponsor this month and Stacey chose 3 very cute digi stamps from Stampers Delights for us to use.  

Prize:  3 signal images of your choice 

So I have digitally printed the image and the sentiment on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter (I have a new one from Creative Memories).

I have coloured the image and sentiments with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, R30
  • eyes - BG53, BG45, BG57
  • hair - W3, W5, W7, W9
  • red - R32, R35, R37, R39, R59
  • green - G03, G05, G07, G28
  • microphone - Y28, gold glitter pen
  • background - BG0000, B0000, B000, B00
  • outline - BG57
  • sentiments - purple glitter pen
I then adhered the coloured image on to a kraft card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring (hope that you can see some sparkle!):

  1. Lou this isn't an image I would have used for a Christmas card but it works really well due to the colours you used.I love how you coloured it and the texture in the hair.

    Thank you very much for entering your lovely card into our challenge. Good luck with the prize draw.

    Stay healthy, happy, keep crafting and Creating Joy :)
