FTHS Mid-Week Inspiration

Time for another inspirational post at From The Heart Stamps!
So, how are you doing on your Christmas cards? Me? Well, I have a few started, but really need to get on them. I am hoping this long weekend to get caught up on a few things. Like the sentiment says:
The holidays are always so HECTIC!!!
Ahhh, deep breath....I can do this :)
Here is my card for this week. I incorporated the weekly sketch challenge as well into my card. And this is my first time making a cloud background behind my image. I watched a couple of tutorials on YouTube and decided to give it a shot. I just thought he needed something going on behind him. The clouds turned out ok for my first time. I will keep trying - practice makes perfect RIGHT!

Image: Deck The Halls Birdbrain
Paper: American Crafts ~ Merrymint
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Viva Pearl Pen ~ Chrome Silver, Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers die, Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Circle dies, Gelly Roll Clear star pen

  1. Hi Michelle, I do like this image its so cute and the card design is great. I love the cloud background, it works perfectly and for your first attempt it's super. That is one thing I struggle with creating backgrounds for my images, I never seem to them right. All y Christmas cards are now made, only need to start writing them out, it never seems to end LOL. Have a nice weekend. Hugs Jennifer xx

  2. Great card Michelle! Fun papers and I really love seeing him in a different color - why do I mostly reach for the yellow when he is awesome in any color?
