Ready to Ring in the New Year ~ CYP Challenge 194
Hi everyone...long time, no blog! I took a bit of a break over the holidays and now I'm ready to go again. We have a new theme at Craft Your Passion Challenges: Celebrate something new (house, baby, year, job, etc.) or use a new product. Our wonderful sponsor is The Paper Shelter and I chose to play with this fun image from them called Happy Meow Year. Love these party cats :) I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils and cut out the image with Spellbinder's large scalloped square die. The outside edges were inked with Broken China Distress ink before the image was matted on black cardstock.
The blue background paper comes from DCWV's The High School Matstack, The colourful stripey paper was from my scrap box. Both were matted in black for contrast before being adhered to a white card base. Primitive stars were cut from yellow scraps with a Tonic punch and two of the three were popped up on foam dots for added dimension. The finishing touch was to adhere two vintage style bingo chips to the front to form the new year, 2014.
To follow the theme, I am celebrating something new...the year. I hope it's a fabulous one for all of us. Thanks for popping in to visit. If you get a chance, swing by the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the awesome projects by the rest of the DT...so fun! I hoping you'll join us this week either in celebrating or using something new.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
