And here it is my inspiration, that features the recent re-released Christmas sELFies stamp set.
As soon as I saw this sketch, I thought to use this stamp set. When it came out, I couldn't resist to purchase it, I love those square illustrations! And, sine there are exactly 6, it was perfect for my sketch.
Each square stamp measures 2,25"x2,25", but it was too large for my card. So, I created a grid with masking paper, because I needed smaller squares. The ones in the card are 1,75"x1,75" with 0,25" white orizontal spaces and 0,5" the vertical one. I stamped all the images in my grid using a black copic friendly ink and I then used a black fineliner to create the "new" smaller square lines.
I then colored it all, using the combos you can find below. I went for a new-to-me color palette: teal, pink, red and olive green, I really love how those fit together!
When everything was colored, I started thinking to the sentiment. I firstly white heat embossed one of the Itty Bitty Holiday sentiments on a piece of red cardstock, but I didn't like it because it was exactly on Santa's red hat. So I white heat embossed the same one on a piece of Prickly Pear cardstock and it was much more better.
To complete the card, I matted the scene using a glittery red cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like my card! Be sure to check the MFT blog to see all the other DT's creations.
