Welcome :) I am joining in the SCACD fun today for some holiday inspiration, Christmas and Hanukkah :) We are getting in the holiday mood here in Canada, as is 'Note to Selfie' :
Had to have a little bit of fun with this digital image, and he does look rather dapper in his Nordic sweater - all ready for a Canadian winter. I have made a few changes to the original image, added clothing and removed wings ! This sentiment also is one I made up and printed, the actual wording with the image is 'Note to Selfie'. Here is a close up of him :
Its fun to be involved in this showcase, I hope everyone is enjoying the inspiration and the wonderful and diverse SCACD images :) For the full list of participant in this showcase, click here.
There were a few steps involved in the creation of this card. The background is sprayed and a stencil used with white ink and I outlined some of the squares in white gel pen. The image is colored with copics, then I added a little alcohol blending solution to a blending foam and pounced lightly to give a bit of an uneven, wooly look :
The jumper is paper pieced. I did this by running a piece of copy paper through my printer and then using temporary tape to adhere the patterned paper where I wanted it, and ran it through my printer again and fussy cut the sweater image :
Note to Selfie and his sweater are fussy cut. Yes, its true ... I love to fussy cut ....
His hat was just sketched on carstock and cut out, colored with india ink and white gel pen.
I sprayed a piece of card stock and when it was dry I punched out some stars.
That was a fun project, I hope you found some inspiration here and will check out the other wonderful SCACD digi images :)
