Christmas For Whovians

I haven't watched the new season with the new Doctor, but I will once it's out on DVD. In the meantime, I made this card to submit to Papercrafts Magazine before they closed their doors. Susan Opel did, in fact, love it though she doesn't watch Dr. Who, so that made me happy. I have a couple of projects coming up in the last online edition—January/February—which also makes me happy, even though the loss of the mag is felt. 

Here's my last submission card. It's the Tardis (blue phone box time machine)—the stamp came from Viva Las VegaStamps. They have some very artsy and fun images, including a steampunk octopus or two!

If you want to create a vortex of sorts like I did, get some Raspberry, Cranberry and Ocean Blue Adirondack alcohol inks, drip them on acetate (stamp packaging here) and lightly swirl with the felt applicator. Let dry, trim and adhere to white cardstock to really show off the color. I used dot adhesive in just a few places so it didn't show through too much.

I stamped the Tardis, colored with color pencils and also Tombow markers, trimmed it out and then popped it slightly up with dimensional tape.

The sentiment is also Viva Las VegaStamps and goes right along with this card. River Song is played by Alex Kingston and her signature phrase is "Hello Sweetie."

Hope you have a happy Monday,
