Sweetpea Christmas bloghop
Hello and welcome to sweetpea's Christmas bloghop. If you've come from the very talented Karina's blog then you're on the right way. If not, start at the beginning at the sweetpea blog and find out how you can win a $20 sweetpea candy. The idea for this hop is to get you superinspired to use your favourite sweetpea stamps for your Christmasprojects. With the right colours, papers and sentiments you can make a card for any occasion no matter what it looks like. I even went all out and used non-Christmas papers. I like living on the wild side :)
The image I have used is from my favourite illustrator ching chou kuik (shhh, don't tell anyone). I've had a soft spot for her images since the beginning and always go back to them. This one is called fluttering butterflies from plate 38 (and it's actually on sale now for only $2!) I really wanted to work with this image as it has a lantern that I wanted to emphasize. Didn't know if I could pull it off, but I must say it really looks like it's glowing. The colouringmedium I used are oilpencils as I know they are able to give this glowing look.
You are almost at the end of the hop. Please leave a comment before you go to our next very talented DT member Sharon.
