I made some New Year cards this year, something I have never done before. I had this adorable dragon digital image from Dustin Pike and without adjustments, he will be obsolete in a few days. This was a free image that Dustin released on his blog a few weeks ago. He typically releases one free digital image each week and has other images you can buy singly or in sets. This is a great example of his style which I think is just adorable!
I used an old sketch challenge from Splitcoaststampers, number 158 to be exact. The front of the card is shorter than the back and the image panel is dropped down to make up the difference. This layout really forces you do decorate the inside of your card, something I have struggled with for years!
The images were colored with Copic markers with some glitter added to some parts. The glittery papers are from a neglected stack called All Dressed Up from DCWV. I used a computer-generated sentiment on the inside above the dp panel. It simply says "Happy New Year."
I am off to work on my stamp room this morning. Tricia is hosting a stamp/scrap yard sale down at Priceless on the 23rd of January. I have lots of "stuff" that needs to find a better home...just have to sort it out.....
