TIOT39, VLVOCT01 - Elisabeth Bell Ornaments!

It's Tuesady!! Do you love it?! We have another fantastic Try It Out Tuesday challenge from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design for you today! This week's challenge (TIOT39) is to use one of the new Special Edition Ornament Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD images in a unique or non-traditional way. Put on your creativity caps!

I loved this fun sketch challenge with a twist from Verve this past week (VLVOCT01), so I decided to use that for today's TIOT. It was perfect for this gorgeous new image from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD - Partridge in a Pear Tree.


I decided to omit the ornament outline and the partridge from the image, just to be different. I did that, stamping the remainder of the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and coloring with Copic markers. After she was colored up, I cut her out with Labels 4 Nestabilities and added sponging with More Mustard and Always Artichoke ink for that vintage/shabby chic look, it was the "twist" for this challege. A lil' lacy border punch, and cnce again I used the Bow Easy from the SCACD store to make my bow, have I MENTIONED how much I looooooove this gadget?! It has rocked my ribbon world!

Be sure to check out the SCACD store blog for lots more ornamental inspiration! I hope you play along with us this week, we LOVE to see what you create!
