Feature Friday at TCC

Hello, and thanks for stopping by to see what's new this week from me at TCC. This image is called: "Snow Friendly". It looks like the little girl is having fun playing around the snowman to me. What do you think? It even looks like he's having a good time. lol

This month at TCC the theme is "Dazzle". This week, the specific dazzle is "Glitter". You might not realize it, but I do have glitter on my card. It's on the snowman's and the little girl's hats. I used my Promarkers to color the image. I'm working on using them more often so I can get better with them (even though I tend to want to drift towards my Prismacolor pencils). I do need to get a few more colors, though. I would recommend them to anyone that wants alcohol markers; especially for the price.

This is another card that doesn't have too many details to it, but I still like the way it turned out. The "ribbon" is some I found at Bunny Zoe's Store. The gems are recollections, and I guess you can tell that I cut the image and the sentiment (that I typed) with my nestibilities. I don't have but one size of each of these sets (the next cut up is 1/4", if there is one), so I used a tip that my friend Dorcas suggested in June, as to "How to Get More Out of Your Nestibilities". The scalloped circle around the snowman was the largest I had. So I cut out around it on my "mat" cardstock. I did the same with the sentiment, even though I did have the next largest frame, I like the "1/8" cut better than the "1/4". Dorcas suggests cutting it free-handed, but my hands aren't that steady anymore, so I traced around the "outside" of the nestibility and then cut it out.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Mojo Monday - sketch

One Stitch At A Time - old stash - paper; new stash - ribbon

The Crafty Pad - anything
