Sandra and I had a lot of fun with the challenge over at the Art Impressions Blog!   The challenge was to take a AI Christmas stamp and use it on a card that was not a Christmas card.  That is to say….de-Christmas it.

Here is the original stamp:


And here is Sandra’s challenge entry:

AI Challenge Sandra


Here is how she did it:

Sweater was stamped, cut out and traced upside down on pattern paper and then cut out again. Drew in the lines.  The rest was coloured with Copic markers.

Supplies:  Art Impressions Ugly Sweater Stamp set.  X-pressit Cardstock,  Doodlebug patterned paper, Michaels ribbon, Memento ink, Copic markers and a toothpick.

Check out my entry in the post called De-Christmased II (If Hollywood can do it, so can I)
