Merry Monday 105:


Welcome to another week at Merry Monday, where we all get a head start on our Christmas cards.

This week, Sue has chosen the theme of decorating each letter/word on your card.




I started with some pink sparkly cheetah print chipboard from my stash.  I switched the "Q" to an "O" but cutting it down and filing it smooth:



 I then used a Copic marker to get a nice Christmasy colour base:



Then came the glue that I smeared on with a paintbrush:



 And the fun part:  glitter!!!!!!!



Put it all together, and here is the end result.  I am so happy I didn't throw away those chipboard alphas as they received a fancy new face-lift.

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Stampendous!
Inks: Memento Rhubarb Stalk
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Bits/Bobs:  Martha Stewart Garnet sparkles, Recollections gems, Lipstick Copic, DCWV chipboard alphas



Don't forget to check out the rest of my teamies super fantastic creations at Merry Monday.
