Never Stop Believing...

Today I'm posting with Team A of the Colour Crazy Challenge blog.  Our sponsor for this week is Mirtillamente Craft Shop.  I've selected their 'Santa Ops' image for my card. 


After sizing the image for an A2 card, I used Copic markers for coloring.  I used a 'Bottle' on my desk to lightly trace a circle in the top left corner for the full moon and a horizontal line for the roof edge. 

Next I colored in the moon using Copics Y11, Y15, Y18, W3, and C02.  Then I used Distressed Oxide Midnight Blue Quick Quotes and a finger dauber to lightly color the night time background. I used a white gel pen to randomly add the snowflakes into the sky.  I used Gina Marie Designs Label Six for the decorative edge.

For the A2 card base, I covered it first with black swiss dotted paper, then added the colored image.  I slipped the card into my Misti and stamped the sentiment.  Lastly, I added Diamond  Stickles to Santa's fur and on the snow at the chimney and roofline.  

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
