Carrying on the challenge, I have three new entries which are also all going into my Christmas stash!
So this one is using a Phil Martin stamp which is the phone and the text message icons; I’ve then added in some christmassy stuff to make it a little more seasonal. The ‘Noel’ is from an Indigo Blu set which I got right at the beginning of my crafty habit and is still one of my favourite sets.
This happy little penguin is from Whimsy Stamps; on this one I have coloured it with pencils but I may well do several of him in different mediums because he is so cute…
And Finally, this is one where I had no idea at all where I was going with it until I did; the snowflakes are a Honey Doo Stamp set from last year which I have heat embossed with a Wow! diamond sparkles. This is the first time out for this embossing powder and I have to say I am impressed! As is often the case, the photo does not due justice to the level of sparkle on this card and having also used Papermania’s Snowflake embossing powder my experience is that this one gives better image coverage with a more even sparkle – however this may just be luck of the draw. I have used distress inks to give the snowflakes some definition, however I then felt that the bottom left corner was looking a bit empty so I added this cute little stamp. I had a horrible moment after stamping when I realised that I had stamped in versafine instead of momento; the card I used here would not work well with watercolours so I decided to use my alcohol markers as planned and hope for the best. I think I have gotten away with it… (hurrah). I have also extended the ground line of the stamp out to the edge of the card so that the image wasn’t floating so much. The ‘Merry Christmas’ is from the same set as the ‘Noel’.
I hope you all like my fun stuff, I certainly enjoyed making it 🙂 – Keep it Crafty!
