I didn't want to finish the year without managing at least one more blog challenge - so here I am.
The challenge about things with whiskers is over at CD Sunday. I sat & had a think as to what I could do - it's Christmas, Santa has whiskers - but surely lots of people will use him. What could I find different? Well in the end I stumbled on an image that I decided to play with. Here is the photo of my card
The image is from MCS Papercraft Library Volume 6 "Men-y Happy Returns". I am sorry but after hunting high & low for backgrounds & things I cannot remember where I got the snowy background from. What I did was to take the Meerkat & soften his edges then merge him into the background. I copied his image to use as a cut out & to 3-d onto the card - but as it was Christmas I needed something else. Again amongst my search through various MCS artwork I spotted the little Santa hat. There were a couple of different shapes but this one had just the right curve for putting on the Meerkats head. The sentiment is a transparent (think that's the right description) peel off. I layered the background onto black card then on to a white card that I had pre-stamped with snowflakes for a random border. The second Meerkat was then placed on with foam pads to raise it above the other one. I had spent a long time playing with speech bubbles & trying to think of a witty saying ........ like "where did you get the hat?" or "why the hat - makes you look simplz" & many more. But I couldn't get them to look right so I plumped for the peel off.
There may still be time for me to join in another challenge before the end of the year - fingers crossed, along with a resolution for the New Year to do better.
It was fun to do. Merry Christmas Everyone - have fun.
Thank you for popping in.
