Say What? - Use a Sentiment for Let's Craft and Create Challenge on the 5th of February, 2023


For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog we have the optional theme of

Say What? - Use a Sentiment

Here is my card:

I have stamped Decorating Tree Marci from La-La Land Crafts on to X-Press It Blending card using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I have then coloured her with Copic inks as follows:
  • skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R20
  • hair - E40, E41, E43, E44, E89
  • red - R22, R24, R46, R89
  • brown - E40, E41, E43, E44
  • grey - N1, N3, N5, N7
  • blue/green - BG11, BG13, BG18
  • green - YG21, YG03, YG25, YG17, YG67
I have used a white gel pen for the dots and strips and then fussy cut her.
I have then die cut two Christmas Trees from Christmas Tree with Trimmings die by La-La Land Crafts - one out of silver and one out of green cardstock, then I also embossed the green one so that the trimmings could be added!
I adhered the silver tree to a Kraft square card from Envelope Solutions and then the embossed green tree on top. Marci is popped up with foam tape and the sentiment is the one that comes with Decorating Tree Marci, stamped in Nautical Blue Memento ink.

Here is a close-up photo of Marci before fussy-cutting:

I would like to enter this card into a few challenges:
The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up Challenge #97 - Anything Goes Christmas with the Optional Twist ...into the Woods We Go

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and used some inspiration from the cards of the La-La Land Crafts Design Team on the La-La Land Crafts blog and Facebook.

Let's Craft and Create Challenges are monthly and go live on the 5th of every month and you have until the end of the month to add your creations which can be anything goes plus an optional theme.
