SCACD Holiday Inspiration Day

Hi all and welcome to the SCACD Holiday Showcase. The Design Team along with some very special friends have gotten together to provide you with some Holiday Inspiration!  There are a lot of us sharing, so be sure to check out all the wonderful projects by checking out the Follow Your Heart Blog.

I ADORE this Masquerade digital stamp, and Love to color her for Christmas.

One of the things I love about this image is that you can make the fabric be all sorts of beautiful with all sorts of interest. Also, it can be used almost any time. This card is a bit larger than your typical card - as it is more like a 5 x 7 card. Sometimes that causes problems if the paper you want to use is 6.x. 6. In this case I used a 6 x 6 design paper, and cut it in half. Then I used the gold bling over the separation. Boom.... extended pretty paper. :-)

For this particular card I also raised up the main image with foam tape. This gives it a lot of dimensions. I then punched out some holly leaves in two shades of green. Instead of using red bling for berries, I went with the same gold bling I used elsewhere and then layered the leaves and berries up and then added some details with gold pen to the leaves. 

Copic Colors:
Skin - E04, 11, 21, 00, 00, R20
Hair - E18, 15, YR23
Purple - BV08, V17, 25, 22
Greens - G99, YG67, 63, 61
Gold was using a gold pen.

I hope you have enjoyed my take on an SCACD image for Christmas, and are inspired. Head on over to the blog and check out what all the others have put together for you there.
