Anything But A Card Challenge

A new challenge is up on the Aurora Wings Challenge blog and the theme is "Anything But A Card". I made gift tags and ornaments, using mostly Holiday sprites in addition to the Kitten in a Stocking and the Christmas Puppy stamps. I will add links for each image at the end of my post so you can easily find them. :-)

I coloured the images with Copics and some Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. I only printed them out at 2" tall because that is how big the tag punch and ornament dies are. I didn't have a lot of space to colour with the images being so small, so I stayed away from images that were too detailed. My kids actually want to colour their own ornaments now, so that is going to be a fun little activity for us in the near future. In the picture below you can see how I decorated the other side with some of the other dies from the framelits set I used. It is from Stampin' Up and it's called "Merry Tags".


Pop on over to the challenge blog to enter your creation(s). You can enter up to THREE times if you use an AW image on each entry! The prizes for this challenge are: 1 (one) Artist's Choice Award Winner to be selected from entries using Aurora Wings digis ($20 GC and Badge); 1 (one)  Random Winner ($20 GC); and a TOP 3 Winners to be chosen by the DT ($10 GC and Badge). This challenge runs until January 13. You have extra time with this one because of the holidays so if you have some free time show us what you can come up with!
