I am sharing a card I created for a couple of challenges, and also to finally start on making my Christmas cards!
There were a few things that jump started me to get this years Christmas cards done - um started ;) - first off is this challenge at Little Red Wagon which asks us to create a project that features a form of transportation. And secondly, a great Black Friday sale at Tiddly Inks! I scored a bunch of new digis, I haven't added to my digi stamp collection in a while so it was super fun!
One of the stamps that I chose was a great sketched truck stamp. When I bought it I was thinking masculine Christmas, even though it is a Father's Day stamp. I was hoping to find another stamp that I could nestle in the bed of the truck, maybe a Christmas tree? Or a Santa sack? But unfortunately I couldn't find anything from Tiddly Inks or anywhere else I checked that was in a style that would mesh well with the truck.
Then I decided that I would try my hand at creating a digital stamp, I chose to try to draw a Santa sack as it seemed the easier of the two. I sketched out my drawing on a piece of plain white paper and then scanned it into my computer and turned it into a PNG file. As you probably know this allows you to layer digital images, so after nesting the two images together, I printed them out and had some fun colouring them up! The sentiment was drawn with the Silhouette using a Steadtler black pen.
