Hello there. A new challenge has started at The ABC Christmas Challenge. This time the letters are ‘U’ for up-cycle, and ‘V’ for Velocity.
Here is my card for Velocity:
This stamp set was bought at the ‘pop-up-shop’ whilst attending my first Copic Colouring lesson last Saturday with Faye Wynn-Jones. I knew the letters for this challenge and so I thought this image fit perfectly.
I started by stamping then colouring the image, and using my Scan’n’cut to cut around the outline.
The background is Distress Oxide blending with a Heffy Doodle stencil, and not being too ‘blendy’ with the blues to make quite a stormy sky, adding white gouache and sparkle splatters. I also used the blue colours to just darken the edge of the silver glitter ‘road’ a little.
The puffs of snow and the Christmas hat is from MFT ‘Ready, Set, Snow’ stamp set – the little Christmas hat just about fitting onto the cycle helmet – I didn’t want to leave the helmet off and mask around it to add the hat – it’s dangerous riding a bike without a helmet!
The larger part of the sentiment is from the Gerda Steiner stamp set, and the smaller part is a freebie from Heffy Doodle with one of their orders.
I hope you can come and join us this month, and create a Christmas card with the challenge theme. The Design Team has some wonderful inspiration too – I hope ou can pop along and have a look – and then join us.I
I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery.
