We are racing through November and you know what comes after that! (Does anyone else think time goes faster now?
Our challenge for you this week at 52CCT is:
Not the usual Christmas colours perhaps, but our team never let us down and we always get fabulous entries.
I've got quite an unusual look. How did I do it? I'm glad you asked.
I started with a piece of white card and stamped and embossed the baubles in silver. (Still in a masking mood from a recent challenge).
I coloured with pencil crayons and then comes the magic ingredient. Baby oil. I sometimes use that on pencil crayoning to burnish and when I used it here it gave the paper a translucent look. I was surprised (I don't know why) but I like the look.
Does anyone else deconstruct their cards after they have made them?
I made this all up on white card and it looked a bit meh. Carefully, I prised off the colouring and remounted on black and the difference was amazing.
The final touch was drawing around an edging die with a silver pen. Wish I'd thought of that sooner.
We always look forward to seeing your entries.
Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x
