Welcome to our next Papercraft Business Challenge #13. The challenge begins December 1, 2018, 12:00 p.m. (Australia Sydney time), or my CST of 4:00 p.m. on November 30, 2018. out theme for December is “anything goes”, with an optional twist of “Christmas”.
Our prize is one of the cutest stamps, Peaceful Tilda, from Magnolia Stamps. I think that I will get out my collection of Tilda’s again. Those are the designs that I colored when I started learning all about Copics.
My project is definitely “Christmas” themed. I created with Altenew’s Festive Poinsettia Clear Stamp Set. I also used Altenew’s new Watercolor Markers and the fine point brush. These are amazing! I’m also getting the hang of using a “water” brush. The point on Altenew’s Fine Point Brush is perfect for me. I feel like I have the same control as I did with a brush. The markers I used from their first collection, “Spring Garden“, were Dusk, Moss, Autumn Blaze, and Midnight Violet. I wanted a true red for parts of the poinsettia so I combined Autumn Blaze marker with Cosmic Berry from their new 36-color Watercolor Pan Set. It worked!
While that was drying, I decided on adding two layers to my card base and I wanted frame wanted gold frames around those layers. I purchased Altenew’s Fine Frames Cover Die and was hoping to use it soon. This was the perfect time. This frame cover die was perfect to fit my layers. I’m also not wasting my gold foil cardstock.
All project elements are ready for my end game, my Christmas card!
