Today I'm sharing a card I made for today's challenge at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog. Each day this week is a new Christmas challenge and today's challenge is to use the Ruby FREE digital image they provided on your project.
This is the first time I've used a Fixatif on my digital image. I bought some Krylon Workable Fixatif and followed the directions on the bottle to set the image. I let it dry for an hour and then colored it using my Stampin Up markers. I'm really happy with how this turned out. The only down side is the dry time. My other option is to buy some Copic Markers (or other non-water based markers) but then what would I do with all my Stampin' Up markers?
This card measures 6.5" x 3.25". I was inspired to try this size when I read Emily Leiphart's Blog post today (HERE). I don't know if I've ever done a 6.5" x 3.25" card but I really like it! I also think this is the perfect size card to use if you're giving a gift of money or a check. Now I just need to find an envelope that this will fit into.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card! I'd love to know what kind of markers you use and how they work with digi stamps!
