Bugaboo Christmas in July 2017 Day 5 Photo Challenge

Bugaboo  'Catch the Bug' Christmas in July 2017 Challenge  Day 5 Photo Challenge




The inspiration I felt when I saw this photo was to create something that expressed a bit of  how tiresome  winter can be,  the days when  you long for  summer as you watch the snow come down.  I also liked the colours of the umbrella and decided to use them . Hope you see a bit of humour in my interpretation. These little bird's look like they could use some relief from it all :O)! Been there, know the feeling.

Card  Details:
Image: Bugaboo's'Winter Birds on a Limb'
Sentiment: Stampin' Up's rubber stamp set 'Snowflakes'
(Warm Winter Wishes) and a hand typed sentiment at the top of the image frame.
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug brand
Colour Medium: Prismacolor Markers

Enjoy your summer!!  :O)!

Bugaboo Christmas in July 2017 Day 2 Sketch Challenge


Bugaboo's 'Catch the Bug' Christmas in July 2017 Challenge Day 2 - Sketch

Today I choose the wonderful Bugaboo digital stamp 'xmas trio block' for my image I could not find in in their current shop, so maybe it has not been transferred yet from their old one. I made the Santa dimensional  by  printing the digi twice, colouring the Santa on one,  cutting  it out,  and popping  it up over the other one.   The sentiment is an old one from a  ticket stamp set  I have  from Whimsy Stamps. I taped off the unwanted  lines . inked it up, removed the paper and stamped the sentiment. The snowflakes are from Martha Stewart punches and the smallest ones are from a old punch I bought at Michaels.
