Happy New Year, all my friends and followers!
It's the first day of 2017 and the first day of a new monthly challenge at Crafts Galore Encore. Our theme is "Anything Goes" and our wonderful sponsor is Sparkle 'n' Sprinkle. They generously supplied images for our DT to use. I chose one of their wonderful Hat Ladies, "Isobel." I wanted something simple and elegant and she really fit the bill.
The image is heat embossed with navy blue EP and I used a blue gel pen to color in her necklace. I used one of my ProMarkers on her lips and another for her eyes. The background is colored with chalk. I used a simple rectangle die to cut the image (Spellbinders.)
I found a scrap of blue CS and ran it through my 'Linen' embossing folder, then added it behind the image piece. The bow is a double color, double loop bow and I cut the tails on a diagonal. The sentiment was printed and colored with a ProMarker. I love the contrast of chilly blues and her warm fur coat. Obviously, she just came in from the New Year winter cold! :-D
I hope you had a safe New Year's Eve and can enjoy a laid back day of parades and football, happily gathered in the warmth of family and friends. Come play in our challenge. We'd love to be inspired by you! Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
