Snowcouple

I've had a few special orders for Christmas cards this year and this is one of them. I've used an image from Crafty Sentiments and coloured it with Promarkers and a little glitter glue.


I've added the sentiment before printing it off and all the papers are from Funky Hand - Twelve Crafters Crafting cd plus I've layered two snowflakes using a Sizzix die (plus more glitter glue!)

Edges have been inked and I've dotted a fine line using a blue gel pen around the edge of the image and the shaped papers. Embroidery thread is from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday: Sketch followed
Crafty Purple Frog: For Someone Special
I Love Promarkers: Snowmen / Snowflakes
Digi Stamps 4 Joy: Christmas but no Animals
Sassy Cheryl's: Winter

  • Image: Crafty Sentiments, coloured with Promarkers and glitter glue
  • Papers: Twelve Crafters Crafting cd from Funky Hand
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Dies: Sizzix snowflakes
  • Everything else: My stash
