Something Old/Something New
This week we are being sponsored by Digital Delights. These images are just way too adorable!! I picked the Gnome to play with. I thought I'd get a jump on some Christmas cards and this is the first one I've made this year. For the challenge this week, we want you to jump into the old supplies that you have and use something from that (something old) and then get into something you haven't used yet on any of your projects (something new).
For my card this week I printed out the papers from Heather Jolly's blog. It's the "Christmas 2009" set. I also printed out the letters, the ribbons, and the pink bag from this set. I added "at you-Spica" markers to all the pink parts of the Gnomes uniform (but I can't ever get them to show up on my pics) and stickles to the letters to make them stand out a little bit more. For the letter itself, I used "Waterfall" and for the outside of the letters I used "Green". My something old on my card is the stickles and my something new are the pompoms. I got them from my daughter for Christmas, but this is the first time that I have used them, so technically, they are still new. For his beard and gloves, I used Polymark Fabric paint in "White Pearl".
The Gnome is removable. He comes out of the card. Remember when posting your card, make sure you tell us which is "old" and which is "new" on your card, or it may not count.
