Delicious Doodles Challenge No. 16

Welcome to our last Friday of 2012. Can you believe it? I reached 59 this year, and I swear that the years go by faster the older I get. Even with that said, I still look forward to the new 2013.

Delicious Doodles Design Team has Challenge #16 ready for you. Our theme this week is “Out with the Old.” The meaning behind this is maybe you want to use some of your new supplies, or maybe colors other than our traditional red and green Christmas colors. If you use a Delicious Doodles image you can enter twice. You never know who will be spotlighted next week. All the directions for entering once or twice are here.

My little piece of art is going to be my last Christmas card for 2012. I have used old and new on my projects. The old is my designer paper, cardstock, crackle paint, inks, and crystals. The new items are my image and dies.

The image that I colored with my Copics and Spica pens is Teri’s latest image, Queen of Holly. She is so hauntingly beautiful. I love how she is framed with holly.

My die cut embellishments came next. I inserted Queen of Holly matted image into the Holly Motifs die cut. The Holly Branch die was cut and I added some crackle paint and ink for dimension.

The supplies that I used are:
  • Copics: Skin-e000, e11, r20; Lips-r20, 422; Dress-e50, e51, e53, e57; Branches-e43, e47; Holly branch-e43, e47; Holly leaves-yg13, yg17, yg21, g29; Holly berries-r29, Spica red, white paint pen; Hair-c1, c3, c5, c7, c9, white Prismacolor pencil.
  • Dies: Spellbinders Holly Motifs; Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Holly Branch.
  • CS: SU Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.
  • DP: My stash.
  • Other: DI Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint; DI Black Soot; red crystals from my stash.
I would like to enter Queen of Holly in the following challenges:
Simply Create – Anything Goes
Sarah Hurley Challenge – Christmas
Paper Play Challenges – Out with the old, in with the new

I hope to see your little piece of art at Delicious Doodles Challenge #16. Delicious Doodles is also having a “Year End” sale. Click here to see all the amazing images. Thanks so much for stopping by today. If I don’t write again until 2013 you all have a wonderful and safe Happy New Year!
