{PIN}spirational Challenge #37

Hello Friends!

I have two posts for you today so make sure you scroll down to see the second post.  

It's Tuesday again!  That means another {PIN}spirational Challenge!  Are you ready?  Here is the inspiration.

The sponsor this week is The Digi Garden.

I took from this picture the ugly Christmas sweater.  So I tried to find some paper that had some pattern that you would not want to wear on your clothes.  The paper is by MME, Flair Designs and Paper Studios.  The image is colored on cryogen paper with copics.  I cut out the image with a spellbinders die and inked it with Tim Holtz distress ink (antique photo).  I finished off the card with ric rack ribbon, a bow and a Paper Inspirations stamp (Dec 25).  I put some burgundy stickles around the stamped image to add to the tackiness of that ugly sweater. 

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13, R20
Pants:  E50, E53, E55
Shirt & Hat:  G20, G21, G24, G28, R22, R24, R29, E07
Shoes & Scarf:  G20, G21, G24, G28

The inside paper is by MME,  I made the tag with aged mahogany distress ink and some more stickles. The sentiment is by Stampabilites, In the Eyes of Children.

Ok, it is your turn.  Take another look at the  picture and head over to {PIN}spirational Challenges to play along with us.  The challenge closes Monday December 17.
