Carol Signing

Here’s a fun card I did for the Make it Colourful challenge where the theme is to have a single light source … aka a “Candlelight or Lantern.” This is one of the images I got last year and promised myself I’d use it this year! The image is Carol Signing from Lili of the Valley and I should have included a Make it Crafty chippie or something so it would count. LOL But alas… here it is anyway …


The background was created by flicking and blending in N0, N2, N3 and BG91, BG93 and BG95. All the strokes were towards the light and in the end I like how it turne out – looks like it really is shining. Then after the image was complete, I used a white gel pen and white acrlic paint to add the snow and highlights.


The card is pretty simple – just some DP and ribbon but the image was already busy enough to keep it’s own focus. This was a fun experiment and next time I think I’ll try to make the sky and shadows darker – or perhaps I’ll try a candle? We’ll see. I’m also entering this into the Lili of the Valley Challenge #120 (Creature Comforts). Hope you like this fun image and a happy early holidays! 😀

Update: My card was featured at Lili of the Valley for this challenge!
