A White Winter Wonderland

I'm really beginning to ramp up with the Christmas cards now - the box is looking healthier (or it would be if I stopped selling them!) and I could not let the ABC Christmas challenge pass me by! The challenge this fortnight is:

Winter Wonderland

This is another image that I'd already coloured a few weeks ago and I've used Aqua Markers as they give a lovely rich colour with a watercolour feel to it. Of course, I've added some glitter glue!

I've layered the Penny Black image onto some very shiny silver card that I found in my box of bits and have layered the sentiment (not got a clue where from) onto it too.

I've used two different Cuttlebug embossing dies for the background, and again used off cuts of card for it. A bit of inking and the addition of the sparkly trimmed white ribbon and the card is complete!

  • Image: Penny Black, coloured with Aqua Markers and glitter glue
  • Sentiment: Some random die cut I found in my stash
  • Embossing folders: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Snowflakes
  • Everything else: My stash
