12 Days of Christmas - Day1

I felt inspired by the 12 Days of Christmas organised by Alpha Stamps. I would not be able to make such wonderfully lavish projects as created by the Alpha Stamps Design team but I thought I give a go to the ATCs. I love ATCs, they are so versatile not only for swaps but also to be used as toppers. Here is my first one: a partridge in a pear tree
I kept it simple and clean in the design but did a lot of 'fuzzy' cutting for leaves, pears and partridge .... The pear tree, a really sweet image from Beccy's Place, is printed on digital paper from Tracy Ann. I printed the pear tree a second time, coloured leaves, pears and partridge with colouring pencils, cut them all out and layered them onto the ATC to give the image a bit more depth and dimension. The finishing touches are a little bit of stamping (Stampendous), some Stickles and a little velvet ribbon bow. Now off to catch up with the 2nd and 3rd day ... enjoy the evening, Petra.
