Luca is very busy!


Finally I get to let Luca out to play! lol
I have had this Tickled Pink Luca Stamp colored since December, but was waiting for the perfect opportunity to create something with him! Now's the time!!
There's a new monthly challenge over at Tickled Pink stamps.....it is the Christmas Challenge- where this month they want to see traditional Christmas colors of red, green & gold. So what better time to show off Lil Christmas Lad Luca. I watercolored Lil Luca with SU refill inks and copics. One of my first attempts at watercoloring (which I completely fell in love with BTW). I also added liquid applique & glitter to his Santa hat.


I added numerous ribbons, trims & embellies to my tag, including the little angel button, white snowflake button & the gold metal corner adornment to the bottom left corner. I also diecut some snowflakes to add to my tag, cuz what's Christmas without snowflakes. Hey?





Wooo Weeee look at that sinister little "kiss me under the mistletoe" grin! LOVE IT!




I am also entering the Tickled Pink Stamps (regular weekly) challenge where this week the theme is "Sewing". I incorportated some stitching to my tag down each side as well as in the red organza ribbon at the bottom of the card! How fun to use hubby's sewing machine! Yup, it's actually hubby's, but I've recently adopted it as my own!! (thanks hunny)!!

I am also going to put this in the Tickled Pink Facebook Page where they are looking for a GDT for April! Ooh what I wouldn't give for a spot like that!!

There are also a few other challenges I would like to enter my tag into: Oh la la Challenge (it's a man thing), ABC Christmas (E for embossing/embellies), Winter Wonderland (snowflakes),  Christmas Stampin' All Year Long (how much bling can you bring), DCD Christmas (inspired by a song)- 'I saw Mommy kissin' Santa Claus', The Crafty Pad (use a ribbon), A Spoon Full of Sugar (vintage, shabby  theme) AND Aly's Sunday Challenge (anything goes).
