You're Snow Fabulous!


Our new challenge has just started over at the Scrapmagasinet DT blog and Heather has a wonderful sketch for us to follow. Heather's sketches are great to work with and I love all the layering she adds... thanks Heather!!!


One lucky player this challenge will win a whole set of below cute new angel stamps. These would be super cute on vintage style creations.


Lisbet has a great selection of fun Christmas stamps like the one used on my card today. You can check them out in my store here. The gorgeous papers are Basic Grey Wassail and I have inked the edges and the edge of my image with VersaMagic Chalk Jumbo Java. The sentiment is free from the Pink Cat Studio Digi Store which I picked up when purchasing a digi a couple of days ago. I printed this out onto the Wassail paper and then used a nestabilities labels 9 to cut it out. The cute little buttons are Tiny Victorian. Again I have used my SU Snowflake punch and Martha Stewart Artic Snowflake punch. I added 4mm white half back pearls to the centers. My image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. Added texture to my image with Polar white flower soft and chunky glitter.

Be sure to come on over to the Scrapmagasinet blog to admire Heather and Wenches gorgeous samples.. they have used some fun images too!

Hugs,
