Christmas Fairy...

613 Ave C's current challenge is #151 - ATG / optional CYOC using the chart below.  Due date is 11/27 & you can submit up to 3 entries for a chance at one of two prizes from the sponsors : ADFD and Zuri Artsy Craftsy.
This is my DT card using an image provided to me by Zuri Artsy Craftsy.  I chose "Christmas Fairy Nixie" because it looks like it would lend itself to Paper Tole.
Some of the most creative Designers I have ever met are at 613 ... do go check them out!

For the CYOC I used: A2, Christmas
& the colors white, red & green.

  • "Christmas Fairy Nixie" from Zuri Artsy Craftsy
  • Sentiment is SU
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • A2 size base card is "Recollections" purchased at Michaels
  • DP used for the background is the last of a carefully hoarded sheet of 12x12 that I purchased from Stanp It Rich when it was open.  Sigh. Miss that LSS! 
  • Punch used for the sentiment is SU
  • Fence is from a Martha Punch.
  • Corner punch for the "Stub" is from a Crop-A-Dile "Corner Chomper"  
  • Die Cut for the trees is Impression Obsessions
  • Die Cut for the focal image panel is Spellbinders
  • Red Bow was made from a scrap in stash.

  • Digital images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
