I decided it was time to play in the challenge over at Delicious Doodles. I'm not sure when I played there last but since I wanted to use this beautiful image of the lamp post, drawn by Teri a couple of years ago, it seemed the right time to play again.
I used colors from Outlawz Color Challenge
(first column) and made sure I added one extra layer.
I colored with ProMarkers, then used my newest set of Pinpoint Rectangle Dies from Memory Box to cut the image and two layers of CS for matting the image. I cut the aqua background and adhered all the layers together on the card front. The bow is die cut with a Cottage Cutz die.
Pretty CAS even with 4 layers. Unfortunately, the bow in the image looks more red than it actually is. IRL, it nearly matches the lighter pink of the die cut bow. Oh, well, chalk that up to the magic of photography.

OK, I've made a serious dent in the number of cards which have been commissioned and I'll still have time to make all the extra cards I want to donate to the senior center near my home. I remember how much pleasure they got from the ones I dropped off last year. So many seniors simply can't get out to buy cards or gift tags for their family or friends and having a stack of cards there at the center which they can then give to those people makes them oh, so happy. :-D So, you're going to see lots more Christmas cards from me over the next 2+ weeks. Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
