 This week at creative knockouts is anything but a square my image to use was Rudy The image was from  leanns .world she has some lovely digital stamps. So I decided as it was getting nearer to Christmas I would do something different .... Not a Card this time and this is what I ended up with

I had a hard job taking a photo of Rudy as I wanted to show it hanging but I finally got one that I was happy with. After  a bit of resizing and when I figured out how big I wanted Rudy to be ,I made a mirror image of it printed it out then cut them out with the scan n cut, I then got too and coloured them with copics,  I made three of them, took a bit of time for them to dry before I got to recolour them I then glued them together and once they were all dry I laminated them this one I punched two holes in the top and threaded thin gold ribbon through it so it could hang up I have also printed and cut out 12 more in various sizes because I know my grandchildren will want to make one when they see this

So here is the three I have done you can see how I have made the mirror image by the side the tail is on  I have not put thread on the other two they might end up on a card or on a tree at one of the grandchildren's house
The sizes of the Reindeer are

Large 21 cm
Med   14cm
Small 12 cm

Time to Garden

 This week at  creative knockouts its about finishing the inside, depending on how much is put on the front of the card it can be too flimsy so we put something in the inside and we don't all ways show it The image used this week was from patties creations and I chose this image to work with gardening time     

Outside of card
I found the backing paper first thought it was bright and cheerful put me in mind of sunflowers so I adhered it to yellow card then onto a white base card, coloured images with copics then fussy cut,  adhered them to card with foam cut the flower and leaves on the Cuttle Bug I used distress ink to do the edges of the flower then adhered to card did the sentiment on the computer

Inside of card
I adhered backing paper to the base card then the white card that I printed the image coloured with copics then stamped the sentiment I then put a thin strip of the card on the top of card  The more I look at the inside I think I should of got the flower images a bit close to the edge by measuring and cutting  it a bit better
