These girl images from Stampendous are SO cute!! And a ton of fun to color.
Here is a close-up look at the coloring, which was done with Copics. I made her cheeks extra pink. Like she just came in from playing outside in the snow.
When I saw this image, I immediately thought of my grandma and how she taught me how to make the traditional Swedish and Norwegian Christmas cookies that our family loves. Making a special recipe book was perfect!!
I made the background behind the girl yellow because I wanted it to have a warm glow, like the holidays. I also stamped the image twice, so I could color and cut out the gingerbread men to give the project depth.
Here is a look at the recipe cards. I stamped the lines twice, but only after I stamped the little images on the bottom.
So, I said I wasn’t ready for Halloween projects, and am I SO not ready for Christmas projects. :) With the holidays, I am kind of anti-decorating. Come on, we just moved into the house and we barely have things where we want them. Can’t we enjoy it for a while, before changing it all?! LOL! :) Don’t worry, I will give in and decorate, because I cannot help myself. :)
BTW-All next week, I have Christmas cards lined up, which works out perfectly with Paper Crafts Magazine releasing the special issue, Holiday Cards and More! Be sure and stop back next week, you don't want to miss out! :)
Have a fantastic weekend! thanks for stopping by!
