Oh, my is the challenge Lisa has for this week ever a great one!! YES, it is! When she told me, I had a tiny bit of a doubt about these colors being dark, but they are GREAT together! And when I got this stamp from I knew just how I would color it!
 This is Parsnip (in case you'r'e looking for it at Whipper Snapper designs). She is stamped on watercolor paper and painted with reinkers.  I used Sahara Sand for the cat and elegant eggplant, old olive and night of navy for the scarf and hat.  Adorable!!
 Then I went looking for background paper, but it wasn't long until I remember this Tim Holtz stencil, called Holiday Knit. I have the stencil because of Lisa, too~she said she had it so I needed it too!  If I wasn't a tad late with my post I think I would have used texture paste for a raised sweater design, but short on time I used my stencil brushes to brush on my colors (rich razzleberry, old olive and night of navy).  I shaded the edges with a bit of pool party and I think it made it look very sweatery (?) and fuzzy!
I have thin gold twine, but I wanted SILVER!  All I have in silver is this chunkier string so I had to go with it.  Why in the world don't I have silver twine!  I'll fix that soon! I mounted the image and sweater on Rich Razzleberry and my card was done!
I hope you like it!
Now, please get to creating something to show us your take on these colors!  Check out the JUGS BLOG for much inspiration and directions!  You could be our guest designer for December if chosen Chic of the Week!
thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
