Advent ATCs Days 14 and 15

ATCs. "O Christmas Tree" is theme for Day 14 and "You are snow special" is theme for Day 15.

Traditionally artist trading cards (ATCs) are 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" but Day 14's is oversized. To get 2 partial trees and a central full tree formed by stencil I needed a little more space.

Day 15's image is a freebie to me because I won a random drawing for the Bugaboo's Catch the Bug's Holiday Chaos challenge last week. I was the daily freebie winner for Thursday, which was fantastic for submitting only on Wednesday and Thursday. Yea, me!!!

Day 14: 
Supplies and vendors=
*lavender cardstock by Colorbok
*2 striped papers by The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby
*Christmas/pine tree stencil from an old Tupperware stencil set
*iridescent gems
*deco tape by Jot
*ruler, pencil, scissors, magenta marker, green marker, brown marker, green and brown colored pencils, glue stick

Technique tip:
*Even with the decorative tape being a micro, I still cut it in half to match the proportion of the tree better to have it zig-zagging its way down the tree.

Day 15:
Supplies and vendors=
*teal blue cardstock by Colorbok
*blue paper with white wind swirls by The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby
*You are snow special digital image was a free download won through Bugaboo Stamps/CTB challenge blog
*navy blue marker and other markers to color the image
*ruler, pencil, scissors, glue stick

Technique tip:
*The image was trimmed at some odd angles but I angled the placement some due to the narrow background ATC compared to the image. I could have oversized the base layer but decided to keep it interesting with the twisted pic.
*The snowman's scarf is actually light pink and dark purple but the light pink is photographing like coral or peach.

My next HIMCR design team inspiration card will be revealed on Saturday around noon time on the HIMCR blog. I will make my detailed post either later in the day or sometime on Sunday evening. And keep checking back to see if I'm keeping up with the ATCs in December.
