Hey there, it's a fun CAS challenge this week...we're supposed to create a project that reminds us of Grandma's house. I was going through my stamps when I came across this Stamping Bella image. It totally took me back to when I was little! My Grandma (pretty sure I get my craftiness from her), used to love to make Christmas ornaments. One year she made little soldiers! This is the perfect stamp for the challenge! *grin*
The soldiers were stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers. The panel was die cut with a My Favorite Things edge die...love! The gold panel was created with Copic markers, as was the poinsettia. Prills were used for the flower center, and instead of bringing in more colors, I opted to color the flower's leaves black instead of the typical green. I'm not sure if I love it, but I don't hate it either.
This card fits into the following challenges:
