My final card for this weeks Simon Says Monday Challenge. Used a cute Christmas image from Di’sDigis. Traced a star stencil and then colored the image that fell inside of that shape with my Spectrum Nior markers. Dappled a bit of gray along the edges of the star in the open areas. I think this technique is called spotlighting? I just know that it really simplifies coloring larger images. (Am entering it into a few challenges. One, the Christmas Card Throwdown, requires the use of Pink, Green and Red. The pink is a little hard to see in this photo, but Penny’s cheeks are a pretty blush pink.)

Another card for AAA Card’s Autumn Colors challenge. The thank you sentiment is stamped with white pigment ink on Kraft cardstock. Added a large skeleton leaf that I’ve had in my stash for some time, tying a small white bow to its stem to match the white ink. Simple!

Love this sweet image and sentiment, which are both freebies from whimsiedoodles.blogspot.com. Printed the gingerbread guy (and one cropped image of his right hand) on Kraft paper and shaded them with tan Tombow marker. Cropped and printed the mug, marshmallows and candy cane on white cardstock, added coloring with Tombow markers. Adhered it to the front of the gingerbread guy and then added the shaded hand with mounting tape (to make it 3-D). The frosting doodles were added with white liquid applique.

Made a simple yet elegant card with scrapbook paper, patterned vellum, a scrap of white lace with lavender velvet ribbon, a strip of wide ivy green satin ribbon and a sentiment printed on my computer. Plan to add a few pearls once they come up for air on my workspace. I can't find them anywhere!!
