Hello from a very snowy corner of the UK, I thought we were going to escape the snow but it started snowing last night and we've got loads now!! I'm a big kid at heart so I love it although I won't be so happy on Monday when I have to get to work lol. Anyway today's card features the beautiful 'Holly, The Christmas Friendship fairy' from Michelle Perkett (hurry over to Michelle's store as not only is Holly on sale this week but Michelle has a fantastic 50% off sale over the weekend!!)
Holly is coloured with promarkers, she has a little flowersoft and prisma glitter on the fur trim around her dress. The background is made using a versamark resist technique - the elusive images snowflakes were stamped with versamark and then brayerd over with Waterfall big'n'juicy ink pad. The snowy hill is just glitter card torn to shape and then I added glitter to edge. I've used a Marianne die for the icicle border and Marianne flower dies to make the flowers (using the copier paper I'd used to get the excess ink from my brayer) and swirls. The beautiful blingy centres are from my friend Linda at Jazzlins Designs.
The sentiment is a stamp from Elusive images, stamped on vellum and then made into a little scroll using inked cocktail sticks.
I'm entering Holly in the following challenges:
Die cut Dreams Christmas Club: use a die cut (icicle border, flowers and swirls)
Papercutz: Anything goes
Totally Papercrafts: Untraditional Christmas
2 Sisters challenge: Non traditional Christmas
Creative Cottage: Untraditional Christmas
Simon Says: Let it snow
I love promarkers: Anything goes + sparkle
Crafty Sentiments: Christmas
Pixie Cottage: Sketch and/or Let it Snow (I've rotated the sketch)
Crafts and Me: Dreaming of a White Christmas (snowflakes)
Thanks for visiting today, hope you are warm and cosy. This cold weather is perfect for crafting so I've got my meltpot bubbling away to have a go at making some beads before settling down to watch the TV.
Don't forget you still have time to enter this weeks 'Happy Holidays' challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studios, if you don't have any of Michelle's images you can pick up some gorgeous freebies over at Michelle's groups at PCP, SNR and CDAC.
