The challenge this week at For Fun Challenges is Christmas and you're definitely going to want to play this week! Our sponsor, Rick St. Dennis has a fantastic prize this week and his digital images are amazing - so detailed! The prize includes the three images our DT used, as well as at least three more gorgeous images! Do go visit his blog here, and his Etsy shop here...
My project this week is shockingly not a card but a Christmas bag. I used Rick's Dancing Elves image and then flipped the same image again so that I had a pair of elves. Dancing is always more fun with a friend. The image is coloured in copics, cut out and then I popped up the hands that are touching and the leg that is in the air to give the elves the feeling of movement. It looks quite effective in real life. The sentiment is stamped with Fired Brick and then embossed for a bit of extra texture and to frame the elves, the bottom piece is a piece of Real Red run through my big shot for a few snowflakes. All in all, a very fun project to make.
I do apologize for the off colours in the photos. The images were taken after midnight and with my husband's camera so I'm not quite up on how to adjust the image properly. I will retake the photos this weekend for a natural light shot.
