CAS Christmas Challenge Sept 2020 with #lotvcrafts

 
It seems to be Christmas all year round at my house. I think every other card I make is Christmas themed, but that's OK. They are so colorful and fun to make, I really enjoy them. This card is my submittal for the CAS Christmas Challenge: Christmas Tree.
Also, Never Before Used-Schtuff...keeping my stash moving along out of this category!
I have been following #livefall on Instagram lately. Her name is Lisabeth Vefall and she is Norwegian (http://lizland.net). Lisabeth does the most beautiful coloring of adorable digital images from an etsy shop called: Lili of the Valley (#lotvcrafts).


Here is the digital image I purchased from Lili of the Valley:
I scaled the image using Microsoft word and printed on my Brother Laser printer onto to Ranger Inkssential Watercolor paper - smooth side up for printing. I fed it through the manual feed and changed the print to "Thicker" paper. It printed perfectly!
Before I colored, I used my Glimmer Hot Foil System with an Essential Glimmer Rectangle and Silver foil to run a nice bead of shiny dots all around the perimeter of the card. I wanted to do this first because I am new to this system and didn't want to have all the coloring done and then mess it up somehow! Spellbinders is having a sale through Sept. 15, 2020 with some great deals:
I colored this busy little guy with my Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils. I really like the texture it gives on this Ranger Watercolor paper. I love to use my Black Velvet Silver watercolor brushes for they have a wonderful pointed tip and make it easy to get into the smallest corner.
The sentiment came from Altenew's Happy Holidays stamp set. I liked the whimsical font to go with this image. Since this is a Clean and Simple card, I did not used any more embellishments or glitter.
Thank you for visiting today and I hope you enjoyed our little boy! It was fun to use a digi stamp and look forward to creating more from the Lili of the Valley Shop.

  2. This is so sweet, Anita! Your watercoloring makes this little guy look even more adorable and brings him to life. The dotted silver foiled frame is a really nice festive touch, and the whimsical font style of the sentiment is perfect for this cute scene. Thank you so much for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!
