Merry Lights

Thursday, October 9, 2014

 
Hello!
Just got home from physical therapy and decided I had a little creative energy to release too.  My leg is getting better slowly, but I'm happy to report I can walk up the stairs putting pressure on my leg.  Down the stairs is a different story, but I'm getting there.
 
 
I started off by running my card front through my Cuttlebug with the stitched border rectangle die from Holiday Apertures.  I then masked off the center ,lining the masks up with the stitched lines.
I then stamped the string of lights, from Festive Greetings, repeatedly to fill the space.  After coloring the lights with Copics, I added a highlight with a white gel pen, and finally I coated them with my clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.  The metal caps on the lights were colored with a silver Wink of Stella glitter pen.
 


I gave that a second to dry and then I stamped the word Christmas from Hand Lettered Holiday.  I die cut the word Merry using the Hand Lettered Holiday Die and inlaid a second one that was die cut with black cardstock.  I couldn't resist covering the word in glitter too!
 
Have a great night. 
I'll be adding this week's projects to the
