Merry Monday Challenge #37

Hey Everyone

It’s Monday, so that means there’s a new sketch for Lesley’s Merry Monday Challenge!  With only a few weeks left until Christmas this is a great opportunity to get your Christmas cards underway.

Here’s Lesley’s fabulous sketch this week:

I wanted a two-tone bauble but couldn’t find my Always Artichoke marker. So I stamped the image in Always Artichoke Ink and then used my blender pen to wipe away the colour from the centre of the bauble.  I then coloured the centre with my River Rocker marker.  I may not’ve completely wiped away all of the Always Artichoke so the remaining colour has mixed with the River Rock and left a marbling sort of effect.  I kind of liked it, so I kept it and used it on my card.  Here’s what I came up with:

We have two new Merry Makers joining the team this week – Susan Joyce and Allisa Chilton.  I’m a big fan of theirs and am thrilled that I will be designing alongside them.  Head over to the challenge and check out the gorgeous cards the Merry Makers have created this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I love the way the colors blend together in the middle of this beautiful ornament, Narelle! I’ll be pulling out my blender pen next time I get this set out. Beautiful bow too and the bell is an adorable accent!

  2. I really like the color combo you chose for this card. The musical paper looks so pretty in the background, and I love how you blended the color in the ornament! Such a pretty card!
