Winter Scene

I know! Another Christmas card! This time I've dug out some of the Penny Black stamped images that I have and coloured it with my Aquamarkers which actually save me time as they are so easy to use - I find I can colour almost two images with Aquamarkers to every Promarker coloured image! I've used papers from the Dovecraft Let It Snow 12x12 glittered stack - I really do like these papers and will be so sad when I've exhausted them! The ribbon I found in my stash and is actually a better colour match than the photo shows. It was actually really sunny when I took the photo hence the shadows and sorry it is a little dark.

The snowflake is a Sizzix die (my most recent purchase when on holiday!) and I've inked it and added some glitter glue to the tips and middle.

My card fits the following challenges:

Penny Black: Christmas in July
Sweet Stop Sketches: Sketch (above)

Shopping Our Stash: Out With The Old or In With The New (my brand new Sizzix snowflake die!)

Use It Tuesday: Animals (brand new Sizzix die used and roll of ribbon that I discovered at the bottom of a box!)
