Dilly Beans Non Traditional Christmas Colors Challenge
This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down for the new Simply Steampunk Challenge. Busy, busy Friday. Our new challenge at Dilly Beans is Non-Traditional Christmas Colors. Ummm...although the DT did some lovely pastels, I'm still in a Creepmas mode so...what can I say? I've used one of my fave images, #161 Zombie Christmas Elf and colored him with Copics in shades of gray. The plan was to use him as a topper for a bag of hard licorice "coal" but do you think I could find any? (Obviously not) Had to improvise with torn paper and a bunch of Glossy Accents but it doesn't really show in the pic. You can see it on the candy on his had and eyes, though. Glued little jingle bells to his collar, too. The sentiment is a combo of Alpha stickers and computer generation and the bottom black icicles (they be DEADLY!) are from an MS punch. Please check out the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog for more fabulous inspiration.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut in 2008, that is. I've since expanded my horizons and found a new love in coloring both rubber and digi stamps with my Copics. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 38 years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
