My First Octaganol Stepper!

Here it is - my first attempt at an octaganol stepper card, and I am quite pleased how it came out if I say so myself.

I wanted to have a go at one of these cards, but there was no way I was going to be able to do it by measuring and drawing line with a ruler and pencil so I got myself a template from BCE. I was really impressed as it was so easy to use - I was expecting my first attempt to land up in the bin, but there was no need!

So, having got my card base sorted out I have used some lovely backing paper from one of my NitWit downloads (either Simple Joys or Merry Christmouse - can't remember which!) and I have edged them all with hand drawn faux stitching.

The lovely image in the middle is from Sugar Nellie - and how cute are these little penguins. Again , I was duly impressed with this stamp as it is quite a sizeable stamp so it makes a really good focal point. I have gone for a water colouring option this time round, using my Whispers Pens - as you can see, I am need of a little more practice with these!

Anyway - thanks for looking, and hope you are not getting bored with the Christmas stuff.....I seem to be on a Christmas roll at the moment!

Bye for now.
