So, today I pulled out my Christmas cards. As a knitter, the chicken knitting a Christmas stocking by Penny Black is one of my favorites. Here's the card I made using her, and a few other PB stamps......
As I mentioned, the chicken is Penny Black (Christmas Knit 3285J). I used Polychromos colored pencils to color her. I wanted to make this a one layer card, so I needed more than just the chicken, so I drew the doodle border with my .01 micron pen. From the top of the border, I drew lines to 'hang' the stars and ornaments, also PB from Mimi's Christmas 30-061. I stamped the verse, PB ...a merry Xmas 2764F, then brushed some distress ink inside the border, and penciled a floor. Then I colored the ornaments and stars, and the border, and finally added some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer glitter to the ornaments and the fur on the Santa hat.
It's a simple card today, but I had fun with it. I am adding my card to these challenges:
The Daily Marker - 30 Day Color Challenge Day 28!!
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - One Layer Card
Penny Black At Allsorts - Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon - Christmas In July
Two more days to go with the 30 day color challenge. Then I can go back to posting a couple of times a week. Every day is a bit difficult to do, but I was determined to complete the challenge!
Thanks for visiting. Hope my Christmas card makes you feel cooler!
