Happy Tuesday friends. Today we are having a holiday in South Africa, to celebrate National Women's Day....so being Women's day I could do what I felt like doing...up to a point.
I decided to do another Christmas card for my RSA friend's community project. I quick one... use a cuttlebug folder, a few red dots a sentiment ...and done... Yea right!!! That was until I spotted a challenge at CAS-ual Fridays, using glue dots and glitter... so just a few minutes extra......ha, ha, ha... That changed the thought process..What paper to use...I found a pearl shimmer paper.... I still got out the cuttlebug folder and embossed this Holly branch, but now decided to colour the leaves....haven't used my Copics in a loooong time!!! In fact this is only my third attempt at colouring.. All the Copic experts, please be kind. I don't have a big selection, and really was just winging it. At least the leaves were coloured. Now for the berries... out came the glue dots...easy for the big berries anyway.... then came the GLITTER,.... Oh boy glitter all over... anyway I did get some on the glue dots, but the samll berries I foiled, much easier.
The sentiment was the easiest.. so what was going to be a quick card was in fact a challenge in more ways than one, but at least I will keep out my Copics and have another bash soon.
I guess it doesn't look tooo bad, not sure if I will put it in the pile for the Community project.
I am entering it in the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays... Use glue dots and glitter
Aud Sentiments Challenge... Merry Christmas
Simon Says .... Christmas in August
Paper Play .... Christmas in August
Hope you all have a lovely week and to my fellow South Africans, enjoy the rest of this holiday.
