Outlawz Progressive Digi Challenge

  I do not have to cook or clean for Thanksgiving, so I am focusing on my Christmas cards....only 41 days left until Christmas. ..........Yikes!!!




























I used a digital image- from the progressive challenge at The Outlawz. Sandi Huggett and Anne Fenton drew such gorgeous images, well I could not resist using them for my holiday cards. I used Neenah white cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers and highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Copics used: R24, R29, R39, R59, Y18, Y23, YG06, YG17, YG67 and C1.  I used the gorgeous  Rosso Incandescent cardstock - not only is it red- can you see the gold shimmer???



 I added a Zig Zag stitch around the edge of the image panel and around the edge of the card.  The clear Rhinestones have been colored Gold with a Y23 Copic Marker.
 I have more of the images colored for the challenge and look forward to finishing all of the cards.

Another brilliant card, Shelly! Such shimmer and sparkle, it glows with the Holiday Spirit. The stitching is a subtle compliment to the image. Your coloring and accents on the Poinsettias is perfect!
