Victoria's December Inspiration Post

Hello! I hope that your having a lovely day/evening. It's Victoria here, I'm stopping by to share my inspiration post for this month. I've decided to crated a Christmas Card using two Cute As A Button images called Mary Did You Know and Drummer Boy. I thought that these two images went together really well and can be found at the Cute As A Button Store.

I've coloured them both with a mixture of Spectrum Noir Markers and Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils and fussy cut them out. To create the sky background I've used Distress Inks like water colours. Then I added small die cut stars and a big heat embossed glittery gold star that I created. I also computer generated the sentiment. Mary is stood in the stable which I designed. To add texture I added straw/dried out grass to the roof.

There is currently a challenge going on at the Cute As A Button Challenge Blog and a Progressive Challenge on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group.
We'd love to see you come and join in the fun.
I hope that you like my creation.
Happy crafting.

Wise Men Still Seek Him

Hi!  Karen here to share some inspiration with you...well, I hope you feel inspired by this card.

This was a fun card to create.  I started with adding everything to my print program.  The image used was Gifts For King Jesus.  You can also get this image pre-colored HERE.

***Did you know that if you want your black to show up better on your digi papers, print the paper first then run the sheet through again with the black where it was supposed to be and remove the digi paper?  Yep, it makes the solid black picture/font show up better!

Once I had everything printed out I colored the image.  I used colored pencil only for this one.  One thing I like to do to give it a softer look is to color the entire image heavily, then use my eraser and erase everything I just colored.  Sounds crazy, but it works.  After coloring the image I fussy cut it out and added pop dots to the back.

I added a little burlap, a burlap flower, 2 paper flowers, some pearls, a gem star, part of a doily, black ribbon and some hemp twine.  The outer sentiment is mine.  The sentiment that came with the image is printed in the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking!
