Hello! Thank you for visiting me and I am sorry I haven't been around much again lately. Another Christmas card ready for this year. I intend to have them all done ahead of time this year! At least I am going to try!
Hmm, it hasn't photographed very well and I haven't time to take another pic as I am running close to the wire on one of the challenges - sorry! The fabulous Christmas tree stamp is Ickle Christmas Tree from IndigoBlu (never used before) - the snow around the tree is part of the stamp. I stamped it on Kraft card with Hero Arts white pigment ink then when dry, added extra whiteness with white Fabre Castel Polychromo pencil - my only Polychromo! I also used it to add snow to my Kraft card base. The baubles are coloured with a red coloured pencil from the floral set by Spectrum Noir and I Wink of Stella'd them. I used a small paintbrush to apply Frosted Lace Stickles to the tree and the snow for a delicate sparkle, which doesn't show in the picture unfortunately! The main image and the red mat are cut using Spellbinders Labels 26 and the sentiment is cut using a die from the Spellbinders Holiday word set. I used my Grand Calibre for the die cutting. This is quite different from my usual style of Christmas card but I enjoyed having a go at something different!
I would like to join in with the following awesome challenges:
IndigoBlu - Snow, Snow, Snow.
Darnell's Blog Birthaversary Surprise NBUS - Use Never Before Use Sctuff and as an extra - use coloured pencils on Kraft card - the tree is my NBUS.
Pixies Snippets Playground - Use snippets - mine are all the red paper which are from my bits box.
Cuttlebug Mania - Winter Wonderland.
Creative Carte Blanche - Baby Its Cold Outside.
Sorry again for not being around much and sorry this is a very rushed post! Thank you so much for bearing with me, I do appreciate it!
Take care and have a lovely weekend. Christine xxx
