Im back this morning in a much better state of mind after a good nights rest in MY bed and some REAL food!LOL! Brayden did great last night but b/c of the weather here I decided it was best to keep him home one more day for breathing treatments. The Dr. wants him to have one every 3 hours until his follow up visit.
When I saw the color challenge this morning I had to fight my usual urge when I see green in a challenge: Flowers or Christmas tree of course. I wanted to do a non floral/tree card. Ive had this Baby Jesus is born set for awhile and I thought the colors would work for this image. I was very happy with how my card turned out since I havent stamped in 3 days. Usually the first thing I make after not stamping for a few days takes me 2 hours and I still dont like it!LOL!
The image was colored with my prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. I applied Tulip white puffy paint to the lambs. I have become a complete Tulip puffy paint junky!LOL! I love stickles but I always have to order it online and that usually ends up with a full shopping cart at electic and a mad hubby!LOL! Tulip puffy paint adds dimension that the stickles doesnt so I like it when I want dimesion and sparkle! The puffy paint is also cheaper and I can get it at Walmart. I got 6 colors of puffy paint for less than $5. Dont get me wrong Im not knocking stickles b/c they have an advantage too especially with smaller images you have better control to not make a mess!LOL! I just like having options and I like using both just depending on what I want for my card.
