HHC41, Sparkle and Shine!

This week's challenge is hosted by our fab diva Nikki! She wants our projects to sparkle and shine. Fun! I did two cards but alas, the photo does not show the sparkle very well :-( though I shot them from many different angles and lighting conditions. Oh well, take it from me, they do sparkle and shine! ;-)
If you join in the challenge, link up a photo of your creation onto the High Hopes blog so that your name will be entered into the draw to win two free High Hopes Stamps!
I stamped Three Pane Christmas using Memento Tuxedo Black ink by Tsukeneko onto Manga Drawing Pad paper, and colored it using Copic markers. Sorry I don't have the color list for this one. Must have forgot to write them down.

I stamped Tom's Plea as well as Sm. Hat in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Manga Drawing Pad by Canson and colored him with Copics. Here is the list:

Ground: E33, C5, 7
Beak and legs: YR12, 24, 31, 68, E97
Floppy beak thingy: R05, 08, E97
Rest of his body: E50, 53, 42, 44
Tail feathers: B21, 24, 95, YG67, BG93, E35
Santa Hat: R27, 46, B12

I used lots of Acrylic Glitter Glaze on both cards, as well as Stickles and Diamond Dust for lots of glitter.

Thanks for looking today! God bless you!

  4. Oh I love both of them Crissy, the 3 pane Christmas is beautiful, love the border punch you have used. And I think Tom is just adorable with his 'go vegan' sign (makes me feel quite guilty for enjoying turkey at Christmas) but he is so sweet and bound to raise a smile. Fabulous colouring and I love the glitter and sparkle. Hugs Dawn Marie.xx

  13. Hi Crissy, Love all your cards and the way you color them! I especially love the three pane christmas card with the border - can you tell me if that is a punch or a nestie and which one? Thanks so much...Sue

  17. Crissy,
    These are just gorgeous! You've got skillz girl! I LOVE that three pane image..


  18. Sue: Thanks so much for the compliment! I used a Spellbinders Borderabilities die called "Lg. Classic Lace". It is too long to cut all at once in my Cuttlebug, so I put it through as far as it will go the first time, then turn it around and do the second half by putting it through again. It works for me!

  19. These are simply fantastic! Your coloring is amazing, and I love all of the sparkly details :)

  20. Gorgeous cards, beautifully coloured!
