What are you doing to celebrate New Year's Eve?

I will be resting and relaxing, after calming down from finding out that I was chosen to be on the SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS DT!!!!!!! Yay! I am so excited! Lindsay's images are so fun. I always look forward to the 1st and 15th of every month to see what great images she is releasing. This card summarizes what my New Year's Eve will be. Hubby and I are staying in, making chocolate martinis and just relaxing!

This image is called a Glass of Wine. I decided to do some paper piecing after I had colored her (and printed her at some random size that I did not save). So to fix this little dilemma, I traced over the image on velum, then used some temporary adhesive to stick it onto the DP, and cut it out. I then removed the velum pattern and glued down my pieces. I also wanted to make the chair look like worn leather, so after coloring with the copics, I painted Tim Holtz's Crackle paint, rock candy, over the chair and let it dry. After the cracks appeared, I rubbed over it with distress ink. I used nestabilites that my husband bought me for Christmas to cut out a flower out of SEI Suede paper, which just kept the cozy, relaxed feeling of this card. I used a sketch from Papertake Weekly to pull the whole thing together.
