Inspired By has really been inspiring me lately. Today I have two cards for their challenge, one based on the regular photo and one for the Christmas one. I'll start with the Christmas one first.
I was taken by the red shoes in the photo (see below) so I started there with the Bear from EbyE. Then pulling out some ancient patterned paper I made the scarf, his present and the ones beside him. They were stamped with another EbyE set and fussy cut. Can you see the words on the packages? They are the same as the sentiment. I also used some of the paper for a panel behind what was supposed to be a gray background for the bear. I had him all glued down when I saw the gray piece on my desk that I planned to use. Oops.
I couldn't leave out his cousin brown bear so I made another card with him, stamping him in brown and adding a little shading with colored pencil and black glaze on his eyes and nose.
Michele sent me the wagon that she colored with Copics and the contents uncolored quite a while ago when they first came out from EH. I colored the pumpkins and gourds with Distress Ink and place them on a white panel stamped with a sentiment from CB. The border is an experimentation with smooshing Oxide inks that didn't come out very well but I didn't want to waste it.
I'm glad you dropped by to see what I've been up to.
