Have you had a chance to play along in The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge? Today is the 6th day I am participating in challenge! I have found it to be great motivation to work on my coloring.

I was inspired by the above sketch from My Favorite Things. And I knew I needed to create a stencil for it. I did that by using some Transparency Film cut down to A2 card size. Then I brought out a star die cut. After that I ran both through my die cut machine. This creates a nice reusable stencil. It is sturdy and can be used over again.

If you visit the My Favorite Things blog you will find this post. Right now, while we are all on lock down in our homes. It is so important to remember the everyday heroes who are out there. The medical professionals, military, and all the other people we take for granted. Who are doing their best to keep us safe and moving through this.

I used one of the nurses that are available as a freebie on that blog post link in the previous paragraph. For the coloring, I used both alcohol markers and colored pencils. If you haven't yet visited my YouTube channel. There is a video showing how I use colored pencils and blend the colors out. Here is the link for that. Once, I was done coloring him in, I fussy cut him out. Then I ran him through my Xyron machine, so I didn't have to worry about getting a good amount of adhesive down. I then brought out my homemade stencil and distress ink. Using my Amazon makeup brush I applied the ink onto the card base. When that was done, I put the nurse on top of that area. Then I used my water bottle to activate the oxide part of the ink. To finish the card off, I cut the sentiment out and backed it up with 3M foam tape. And then I scattered the embellishments around my card.
