The PTI team each submitted a different artistic challenge using a popular artist's style or technique. I was drawn to Betsy Veldman's artist, Ralph Huett. You can read more about it on the PTI website.
Here is his Christmas card. I think I've been out of the loop because I'm not sure I've ever seen one of his cards...but I was really drawn to his pink sky and shadowing.
His card is on the left and Betsy Veldman's masterful inspired card on the right.
Mine turned out looking a bit more Haloween-ish than Christmas-y...maybe too many shadows or just plain spooky...but I had fun with this technique! And I reached for some long ignored stamps...the PTI sleigh silhouette was used along with some cute houses from Stampin' Up.
I actually hand lettered this...which didn't show up as well as I would have liked...but it's definitely "artsy" for me.
Thanks for taking a peek!
