613 Avenue Create Anything Goes December Challenge

 Welcome to December's Anything Goes Challenge with option of Up In the Sky at 613 Avenue Create. You can chose what about the sky you want to share with us: sun, moon, stars, sleighs, angels, clouds, etc. I did consider Superman for a bit! LoL But I saw something that inspired me to CASE it so here I am. 

This is Lovely Legs - Bethlehem's Light from Colorado Craft Company. I was browsing the store for some Christmas stamps and I ran across one that the set itself did not draw my attention. It was Sandy Allnock's coloring of the image. I thought it was breathtaking and I wanted to make the very same card for my loved ones' Christmas cards! So I bought the set and then visited Sandy's website to see if she had a tutorial on how she'd colored the image. Alas! I did not find one! I found lots of other nifty tutorials so now I am watching her stuff along with Elaine Hughe's Marker Geek channel on YouTube. Sandy has lots of great free information but she's also got some truly awesome affordable classes, I had to sign up for a couple!! I should have checked first to see if I could find the tutorial for this technique before purchasing the stamp, but, well, the damage is done! Sandy used browns and really dark colors. I am scared of dark colors. LoL And I thought I might could replicate it myself with a blue sky. As I was almost done, I realized why she'd used browns. LoL But, again, the damage had been done! Since finishing this, I have grown to like it and decided to go along with it anyway. I did CASE her card, but since I was unsure of how to color it, it is not as spectacular as hers. I invite you to go check it out so you can see for yourself how breathtaking her card really is! You can see it as a sample image at the Colorado Craft Company store. I linked it above and linked it again just now. I used some blue metallic cardstock from my stash to mount the image onto white cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers and white and gold Dyvicl gel pens.

Sentiment is from the set.
