MelJen's Designs Glitters In Gold

Good morning everyone! Boy .. this has been a busy week!!  Monday I had doctor appointments... Tuesday was Lacrosse practice with Bailey... Wednesday was get Kevin to the DMV so he could officially get his Car Drivers License... he had the motorcycle, just hadn't taken the test for the car. The lady told him that he would be the best she had that day and that he should stay and teach everyone else LOL!!  Then it was take care of the tags for the bikes which ended up a nightmare because my daughter some how transferred everything to a different county... Then it was Support Group night. It was a busy Wednesday!!  Today is Lacrosse practice again!!  LOL What a week! I hope everyone is having a great one!! We are closer to the weekend!! Woot! Woot!!

Today we are on Challenge #251 at Meljen's Designs and our theme for this challenge is All That Glitters Is Gold (use gold). Here is what I have come up with:









I had so much fun with this challenge. I thought it was going to be hard to add gold, but I had a lot more gold than I realized. And with gold, I thought this would be the perfect time to throw in a Christmas card! For this one I used two images, Jingle All The Way and Jingle Bell. I colored these images with my Copic Markers, but with Jingle Bell I did a bit of piecing with gold paper. So, the top layer of the bell is printed on gold paper. The Jingle Bell image is also layered a bit. I added some details with a white pen as well. I added gold star paper on the bottom and gold ribbon to add a bit more gold. Then, I did some dots around Jingle All The Way with my Gold Liquid Pearls. I'm thinking I did okay adding the gold :) And this is my very first Christmas card for 2015!!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Holly: G20, G21, G24, G28
  • Berries: R24, R35, R59
  • Ribbon and Bow: R22, R24, R29
  • Bells and Stars: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23, YR24
