Let’s Celebrate

While perusing blogs this weekend, I saw that Bugaboo was having a color challenge this weekend using a color palette called “Red Velvet”.

I was totally scared off by the color choices at first until I remembered that a few weeks back I had snagged the Bugaboo Lil’ Prince and Lil’ Princess. Well, of course I started thinking royalty and the colors they wear so I was off and running.

I started by pulling out all the Copic markers that went along with the color challenge and began coloring things in. This took a total of 15 colors to do and I was floored that I did that much shading on two digi stamps! Woot!

After coloring these images, I had no clue how I wanted to assemble the card with these images. Because of this I went through the various sketch challenges I had printed out and found the Sweet Stop Sketch that I thought would work well.

So I went through my papers and found these two very deep red papers {actually from a Recollection’s Christmas stack} and cut them down to 2 3/8” square. I mounted it on the piece of black cardstock that that is 5” x 3”. I then pulled out my EK Success Scallop Punch to mount behind the black cardstock.

Before adhering the square and Lil’ Prince and Lil’ Princess down, I pulled out the sentiment from January’s Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart and used Fired Brick to stamp Let’s Celebrate.

I cut down a bit more of the black cardstock that then has a piece of cream cardstock on top of it and is doodled with a Red Uniball Signo Gel Pen. After I adhered the Lil’ Prince and Lil’ Princess, I added some Xmas Red Stickles to the Princess’ dress and Prince’s collar. I then also added some Gold Stickles to the crown tops.

I really love how this card came together and am totally excited to have more Copics to do more shading with!  I am also linking up this card with the new Shopping Our Stash challenge! I used people and BUGABOO stamps!
