The current challenge at ABC Christmas is "U" for "unused stash." The DT included photos of their stash, and it was so much fun to see their unused stash "magically" turn into cards. I thought it would be neat to create a little magic of my own. Here is my unused stash. (Can you believe that gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp was un-inked? For shame.)
And here ****waves magic wand**** is my card.
Doesn't this image make you want to cuddle?!
I used the fabulous sketch at Sketch Saturday to complete my card. The papers are from a DCWV Christmas stack--a little more unused stash for you :) The stitching around the image looks black, but it's really dark green. The camera also seems to have washed out the colors in the image--maybe the waxy finish of the colored pencils just doesn't photograph well?
And to make up for the fact that I left that poor little stamp un-inked for so long, I decided to make a second card. ****waves wand again****
This time I used the sketch from Our Craft Lounge. The papers are from the same DCWV Christmas stack (it's not unused anymoooooorrrrreeee!). The ribbons and gems are from my stash.
In addition to the challenges mentioned above, I'd like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland-- "Robin Redbreast"
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long--"Seeing Spots"
Thanks so much for looking!
