Christmas In July Sketch Challenge!


Hello, I made this card for the Bugaboo Christmas In July Sketch challenge on the Catch the Bug Blog!

Today I used JJ Ornament Happy Holidays! I thought about leaving her naked, lol but decided to put a red dress on her! JJ is coloured with copics, there is crystal effects on her lips, glasses & candy cane. I also covered the top of the ornament with a gold copic atyou spica.
This panel is popped up.

The card base is poppy parade, with dp from Basic Greys Jovial. The flowers were made using the retired 3 flower punch from SU. You can see above, the tools I used to make my flowers. I punched 2 poppy parade flower for each poinsettia.

Then with the flower on the mat, just use the ball of the scoring tool on the backside of the flower to brake down the fibres and added the erfect curve!

I punched one flower from old olive, sponged the edges and cut it up to create the leaves of the poinsettias. The centers are gold brads, and I finished it off by adding a couple tiny drops of crystal effects to the petals...not sure I like that but it's done now! lol

Have a Great Day!
Laurie
