We're still celebrating a Christmas Feast at Jingle Belles this week. I decided to go with a yummy Gingerbread Man from Martha Stewart border stickers for my food focus.
I created my own polka dot background using the Hero Arts Forever Green Ink Dauber. I started with a piece of paper larger than my intended panel, got my dauber nice and inky with a few test splots, and then just started pushing it hard down on the paper very quickly creating the fun *splash* effect with the ink. When I finished I trimmed down to the piece for my card (that way it's easy to position splots off the edge of the paper) and rounded the corner. It was so fun ... I felt like I was back in my favorite elementary school art class.
Next I added two border stickers (the gingham reminded me of my Grandma's Christmas Apron she wore when we made gingerbread men).
I finished with Hero Arts Stamp & Cuts Ornament (there are lots of fun Stamp & Cut sets that are so easy to use since they include coordinating die cuts) that I attached with foam tape. The finishing touch was a red sequin at the top of the ornament.
The layout is this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
