Hello on a Monday, friends! You're probably doing way better than me, but I feel as though I can't get another single thing done until I finish my Christmas cards. By day I create, by night I address and write up cards for the mail. Actually, I don't spend all day and all night on cards, but it's on my mind a lot.
Today's card is Bentley by Whipper Snapper. I made four of these, all the same, inspired by two challenges which I'll list at the end.
Super easy and quick coloring with Tombow markers, no water. These markers blend so easily when using marker on marker. Much easier than Copics and just the ticket when I'm in a hurry. Bentley's hat is trimmed with Viva Decor Ice White Pearlen Pen (similar to Liquid Pearls), then sprinkled with microfine glitter. The one gold glittery star completes my nod to holiday sparkle.
It was Double D's Santa Hats Challenge and their cute mood board that made me think of Bentley, so he's heading over there to spread holiday cheer.
Bentley and I are also playing along with Retro Rubber Challenge #149. Older stamps are required, and Bentley and the sentiment are both several years old. For the current challenge we are to use the photo for inspiration (see below). I made sure to include red and green as well as pine boughs, plaid stars, and a stitched mat.
I'm listing card ingredients below, but a lot of these things are no longer available. We're all just having fun, playing with our stuff, right?
That's all for today! I'll be back with more Christmas cards this week. Happy holidays!
