A little Christmas cheer?? Sometimes, I just have to shake my head at my quirky sense of humor!
It all started out innocently enough. I adore this Rob Meijer Christmas for Stampinback sheet, available at I Brake For Stamps. It's one of the first stamp sets I think of when I think, "I should make my Christmas cards..." Stamp set selected? Check!
I've been busy exploring my stencils and getting lots more bang for my buck by trying all of the different techniques on the Technique Junkie Sensational Stencils CD. There are 40....yes, that's right, FORTY! techniques on this CD showing so many different ways to use a stencil. You can order yours (or read more about it) HERE. Be sure to check out the pictorial index to see a sample of each technique. I've used the Stencil and Doodle technique on my project (less so much the doodle part). Background Done? Check!
Eventually, it comes time to select the perfect image to complete my card. The Rob Meijer sheet doesn't make this an easy thing. There are so many cute images on the sheet. I used the Starburst stencil from Ranger thinking about that Special Star....I thought it would be a good choice. So, I settled on the adorable shepherd boy. As I colored him, however, I really had to work hard not to color his clothing in drab army green:
Do you see it?
