Scallops and Chinese New Year.

IMG_7757

Hi everyone!!

I have been a BAAAADDDD blogger! I went from three posts a week to just one! So sorry I've neglected you, Blogspot. But I have been busy cheating on you with my long time infatuation, Facebook, and my new love, Instagram!

I'm hoping to catch up soon with posting about Project Life too! I have been pretty good about it. I'm just one to one and a half weeks behind. I accidentally didn't see my order of pictures through so I had to re-order them again a little later than usual. I've bought the new Canon Selphy so I really need to start using that. It's just so convenient with your phone!

Anyway, it's time for Christmas Card Challenges (#11). The challenge is to incorporate scallops into your design. I've got several ones going on up there :).

The image is from All That Scraps' No Peeking Meoples. I usually outline the image with a gray-colored Copic to make it pop out more. But I kept seeing this dot/ stippling technique. So it turned out like this. I really like it. I think it brings the colors together.

For more on our current challenge and awesome inspiration, please visit the CCC blog.

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone!!!

I quite like the speckled background effect with the Copics - it really does a great job of mimicking the tree lights!
