I'm so excited to have a chance to be a guest designer on the Copic Buzz Challenge! Thanks to Robyn's Fetish for providing a free image for me use - isn't the fireplace cute? Of course everything is coloured using my Copics. I am particularly proud of the glow from the fire - it worked out very well.
Card #1 – 3D Card
The original digital stamp had 4 stockings hanging from the mantle but the 2 outside stockings were only sketched in lightly so they didn't look very good when coloured. I hid the sketched-in stockings on each card by “moving” the two middle stockings and adhering them with pop dots over the sketched stockings.
Then I added the pair of mice in stockings (Penny Black stamp) to the center. The cat in the sweater is also a Penny Black stamp. I added Stickles glitter glue to the cat’s sweater, holly berries and stockings. The cat is sitting on an actual piece of wrapping paper that I curled & distressed!
Card #2 – Shadow box card
The scallop circle is cut on my Cricut and then inked with Versamark frost to give it shine.
I made my own patterned paper by stamping the blue cardstock with a holly stamp I got free in a magazine using the same Versamark frost ink.
I extended the fireplace by creating a chimney from pieces of another copy of the fireplace digital stamp.
Well, that's it for today. I have to go work madly on a scrapbook I'm making for a co-worker who is retiring this week. Nothing like leaving it to the last minute!!!
