ugly sweaters

Hello friends and Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you all are able to spend this day with family and friends, giving thanks for all God has blessed us with!

It may be Thanksgiving, but today the Art Impressions team is featuring the new Ai Michael’s exclusive Christmas Clear & PopCards Sets! Here I used the SC0799- Ugly Sweater set.

I’ve been wanting to make some CAS cards with a little selective, “spotlight”, coloring and I thought this gal would be perfect for it! I tried 2 different styles with masking and sponging on each. Both used a combination of masking with a post-it note and some masking fluid for the tiny areas. On the first one, I simply sponged green ink on the right side.

For the second one, I covered the masked image with a dotted stencil and sponged on some red ink. For both, I kept my image close to the bottom so I could add a strip of patterned paper to the top. After selectively coloring a few areas, I finished them with some Stickles and tied on some linen thread.
