Clear It Out Challenge…

Well, it’s time for another Clear It Out Challenge and this one is going to be a little hard on the eyes so I’m apologizing upfront, lol.

Theme: Ugly Sweater Time
Stash:  Use your ugly, unused scraps of paper from your stash.

The sponsor for this challenge is Digi Darlas and she’s giving away 5 digis to the winner of this challenge.

I decided to take my scraps and cut them into strips.  I adhered them to the card front to create the background.  As you can see, a couple of the papers were glued on upside-down but I think that just adds to the ugliness of it, don’t you? 

The image is by Digi Darlas and it was colored with copics (YG 61,63,67 / R22 / E000,00,11,29,35 / B01,04,06 / R81,85 / W-0 & Colorless Blender) and Bic Mark Its (Rambunctious Red/Salmon Pink/Spring Green/Lemon Yellow/Prairie Berry). 

I created the sentiment on my printer with PeaMillyMix free font.  I used pop dots to pop-up the image and the sentiment and that’s it!  Easy, peasy.
