I don't think it is too early to start on a few holiday cards, do you? I have been thinking about getting some made and this one "emerged" from one of my backgrounds. I make the backgrounds in big batches and put them in folder. I always have a nice selection ready to use. Now, back to the holiday topic. I like to try non-traditional images to make holiday cards...... You know, just for fun. Here is my Holiday Lady. I used the Character Construction Stamps:
I started with a background made with a Crafters Workshop Template and spray inks. I stamped onto the background with Sienna and Coffee Archival inks. I drew in skirt silhouette with a black marker following the diamond pattern in the background. I did not plan this, it just happened. LOL. Sometimes things just come together like that. Sometimes. I layered onto green and red CSs, and added a bit of shimmer with a gold pen on the edges of the card base.
I stamped the bird in red, cut out and layered onto the branch. I added some silk poinsettias with a gem in each center.
I added a nice sentiment to the inside, a left over piece of background, and a spritz of spray ink.
I think I will make a few more of these to go in the Holiday card box. I know some of my GF's would love this card.
