SDC78 – non-traditional Christmas card

This marks a departure for me in the SDC Challenge.  I have ALWAYS used a Stampotique stamp in the past but this time as soon as I saw the challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I’ve had this Three Stooges stamp for maybe 10 years and never really found a use for it.  It was perfect for the challenge.  I could have used three of the Stampotique boys but I went a different way.   Not world-class Copic colouring, I’m afraid, but I did like the dotty background.  I used that in a very old post once before, although that was more of a shaded gradation of colour, darkest near the image and fading outward, where this is more just a scattering of yellows to fill in.  I didn’t want to cut out the Stooges, or fiddle with masks, and no other technique made sense. I like t and would use it again, I think.

I love the font for the letters (Urban  Scrawl Boxed) – I printed that then coloured in the boxes with the Copics and cut out each letter.  It was a struggle to fit it all in LOL! The star is a leftover from DDs Christmas cards for her classmates.  I matched it with a very Christmas-y paper because I liked the contrast.

So the Snorfs from yesterday will have to wait a day longer then I’ll share my project.  I’ve had another idea for the end result so the delay is good.
