Zoe over at Make It Crafty have brought back the colouring challenge! For me that is super exciting, as that was how I got introduced to Make It Crafty and alcohol markers. My first markers was spectrum noirs but through the years I now have collected a full set of copics. Through Zoes challenges I have grown as a colourist and since I’ve been a DT member for Make It Crafty she has continued to challenge me to evolve as an artist.
For the card today I’ve played with an older Christmas stamp called Fairy Star that is part of the Cute Christmas Fairy Collection, both which are on sale at the moment! If you want some more fun inspiration with this fairy stamp I have an old video where I made a card with it, which you can find HERE. The challenge is glow so decided that I wanted the star wand to glow. I wanted the glow to be subtle, to let a little bit of the base colour to show, so I added the lighter colours on top of the glow yellow.
To make it into a card, I made a background by smootching distress inks on top som Montval watercolour cardstock and then using a die to cut it out. For sentiment I used the Christmas Word Chipboard and Christmas Adapt-a-Word chipboard set which I coloured with distress paints, I also added some red Stickles glitter glue to the Christmas word. To finish it off I added a little Star Snowflake.
Now come join us with the challenge! Remember we all start somewhere, and these challenges are a great place to learn new things.
