Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!

It's Saturday and I'm delighted to introducing you to our new challenge at 52CCT
For the next two weeks we'll play with shadows. You can use stamps, stencils, embossing powder ......but you can also draw the shadows yourself.
On the challenge blog you can find some videos on how to make shadows if you are not familiar with this technique. 

I decided to draw the shadows myself - the straight lines of the subjects on my card made it very easy.
I positioned the subjects provisionally and shifted everything slightly to the bottom right. I drew a fine line at the bottom and right edge of the shapes and then pushed the pieces back to their original position. I coloured the shadows and then embossed about two thirds of the panel with a wall pattern. I stuck the beam to this border and hung the stockings on it so that the previously drawn shadows corresponded with the subjects. 
Finally, I stuck a strip of Washi tape to the bottom border and stamped the sentiment - which I also shaded.
Everything is colored with alcohol markers and fussy-cut... 

Have fun with the challenge!

  4. Rosi: I had to zoom out on your card photo to see the subtle shading for Merry Christmas! It's terrific! Probably looks much better in person than what gets captured by photo. Well done for the technique challenge!
