I have to say that mine didn't come out half as nice as the samples - I think I made a mistake in using alcohol pens when I should have gone for something softer such as water colour pencils or Whispers pens.
Anyhoo - here's what I did:
- The background paper is embossed with snowflakes using my cuttlebug embossing folder. I had to make to sheets to cover the base card so I cover the join with some white satin ribbon.
- I also cut a nestie oval as the background for my image and sprayed it with gold spray and sparkle for a bit of definition.
- I punched out some snow flakes for the corner and also sprayed them with spray and sparkle (boy that stuff goes to your head - I now have gold grass though as I sprayed mine out in the garden!!)
- Finally, the Pink Gem snowman image is coloured with Spectrum Noirs. In hindsight I wish I had gone for something a bit softer , colour wise, but I was trying to avoid my pink / purple habit!
Here are the challenges that I am entering:
A Gem of a Challenge - White on White
Secret Crafter - Christmas is Coming
That's it for this card - but will be back with another post in a bit ( I have been a busy bee!!)
