Happy Holidays...
I am taking a break from any challenges this week. Just decided to show some of my cards I made over the last couple years. I
colored this with regular brush markers but the ornament was
done with a water brush and marker. Added silver starlight gel to circles and top with dimensional glaze. I think the image is inkadinkado???
Anyway see ya next week, stay happy!!!

I got as dark as I could get with this one....
I used orange cardstock from DCWV, distressed the front by applying tape and peeling away layers and scruffing up with burnt umber ink,
random scorbug and scor-pal used. Hat was stamped on white cardstock and I drew melted area in green and cut-out and glued to card front.
T-3039 Pumpkin Day (retired) was used for hat and witching you, the rest of saying was stamped on clear sticker sheet trimmed close and stuck to card. I was stumped for this challenge, but had a couple cards in my head and got them done Fri. nite watching Medium on CBS. I hope you get the pun!

Gold Greetings to all...
Here is my card for SSC, which had to have weaving. I used DCWV cardstock for base and scored with scor-pal and scor-bug on sides.
Distressed the card edges too. I used Nesties Label #1 for the gold dotted-swiss embossed and
green DCWV cardstock. All strips are same cardstock used for weaving and cut out with scalloped oval Nestie. TAC stamp sets are the Holly from T-1253 Christmas Fun and the Merry Christmas Oval R-2721 (both sets retired).
I embossed the Merry Christmas Oval with detail gold powder on white bristol board cut out and touched edges with burnt umber ink. The Holly was embossed with black detail powder on Bristol board and colored with Marvy brush Markers and stardust red and green pens from Sakura. I took my time getting the idea as it is the middle of the week, but I think it was worth it. I am liking my own work and may have to make several more. What do you think?
