Happy New Year 2016


Today I am sharing a card I made with the Bugaboo Stamps image called JJ Calendar Months January.  I make my sister a New Year's card with this image every year. It's kind of fun to challenge myself to make something different with the same image each year. I always end up with black and gold though. 

I used the Night Sky Background effect with the Spectrum Aqua Markers. Then I colored JJ with Spectrum Noir markers. On her dress I used the sequins technique I learned in the Kit & Clowder Clothing Class. 

I cut the "2016" on the Silhouette out of some glittered cardstock. I matted that and the image on some gold vellum from the Paper Temptress. 

Spectrum Aquas used: Charcoal, Black, Navy and Orchid
Spectrum Noir Markers Used: FS2 FS4 FS9 TN2 EB5 TN7 TN5 GB10 GB9 GB6 GB1 LY1 IG9 IG7 EB2 EB1 BT2 BT1 True Black
