Open-Minded Crafting Fun is Rolling Out The Red!.

Good morning!

So, today we are starting Challenge #19 over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun. Our challenge theme for this fortnight is going to be Roll Out The Red. We want to see lots of red! It doesn't matter what kind of theme.. autumn, fall, birthday, Christmas.. that is entirely up to you.. We just want to see it all dressed up in Red!! :)  Our wonderful sponsors for Challenge #19 are:

Here is what I have come up with:

As you can see I decided to go the Christmas route on this one. And I made a little bag! The image I used is Holiday Truck from the wonderful Scribbles Designs. I cut the bag with my We R Memory Keepers Punch Board. I had the most fun decoupaging this beauty!! I wanted it all layered.. with the different layers of gifts all stepped.. I love it!! I tried to take some photos to show it, but it doesn't really show you that well. I added the sparkle fiber to it. The papers are all scraps from last years Christmas papers. I added the little charm to top it off and the ribbon as the handle for the bag. The image was colored up with my Copic Markers and the ornaments on the tree were colored with my glittery Spicas.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Truck Red: R37, R39, RV99
  • Christmas Bag and Ribbons: R14, R35, R46, R59
  • Truck Green and Gifts: YG03, YG05, YG07, G19
  • Tree: G12, G14, G17
  • Tires: C1, C3, C5, C7
  • Wheel Hubs and Springs: C1, C3, C5
  • Undercarriage, Seat, Steering Wheel: C3, C5, C7
  • Blue Gifts: BG01, BG04, BG07
  • Purple Gifts: V12, V15, V17
  • Pink Gifts: R20, R22, R24
  • Yellow Gifts, Star and Truck Light: Y11, Y13, Y18
