It's time for a mid-challenge inspiration make for the Christmas Fun over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog.
This gave me a chance to have another play with the totally awesome Work and Play Festive Hollybobs CD and the image I have used is also available as a digi download and her name is Hollybobs Cards so don't forget to check her out in the Polkadoodles digi download store.
Now onto my DT make....I have something a little different for you, and please don't fall off your chairs but I have NOT used my alcohol markers! I know, a shock right! But I am very pleased with the effects on this card and really hope you are too.....
The artwork by the amazing Nikky Hall is so good that all I did was to take my black micron pen and add shading by dotting and adding small dashed lines. TOP TIP: I followed the shading guide already on the image and kept stopping and looking at a different angle to make sure I didn't go to far.
The layering was kept simple, black and white spotted paper from my stash and I fashioned a frame for the image from scrap black card (see there is a reason I keep it all!).
Finally adding a button and some black onyx perfecct pearls and ta-da, my quick make monochrome Christmas card is done!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will leave me a comment as I love to read them :D
