Happy Monday, peeps! And Happy St Patrick’s day!!! Today is a special Monday---the Merry Monday challenge is celebrating its 100th challenge! Lesley has a sketch as well as a photo inspiration for us all today:
Wow, this will wake you up on a Monday morning, won’t it?! I won’t lie, these colors are not the first one that come to mind when I create Christmas cards, but they are fun in a retro way, so I went searching in my stash to find something that would work! I found some miscellaneous DP in a deep pink swirly design; I pulled out the last little piece of Green Galore cardstock I had, along with some Pink Passion, the matching inks, and a CTMH tree from a couple years back. Here’s what I came up with:
I stamped all the birds in Pink Passion ink on scraps of white and cut them out and popped them up….didn’t take as long as I thought it would, and it gave the tree a nice little contrast:
Since the colors were so bold, my only embellishment was a little bit of baker’s twine added to my horizontal panel, and I made the banners simple so as not to detract from my pretty tree!
Now, what will you create with this bold palette and fun sketch? Can’t wait to see…share it with us at the Merry Monday challenge, and add another card to your Christmas card stash!
Painting AND stickers…the best of the crafty world!
