Cold but no Snow

Its a cold day here in the South although not as cold as I know it is for some of you. However, its still a good excuse to be inside crafting!

My card has a wintery theme. I have had this stamp by Sheena Douglass for about a year and have only just got round to using it!

I stamped the image and used Promarkers to colour it in. I'm not sure if you can see it but I used diluted Liquid Pearls to add a shimmer to the snow. After mounting the picture onton grey and polka dot card I added punched snowflakes with gems in the centre. It makes me feel cold just looking at it!

Keep warm and Carry On Crafting!!

I am entering the following challenges with this card

Sisterhood of Crafters - Let It Snow
Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes

Handmade With Love

Last week I posted a picture of the magazine article I was featured in, so I thought you might like to see the cards close up. Firstly I am sharing this one below.

The digi images and papers are from a collection by Wendy Massey at Handmade Harbour. To create the card I coloured the image with Promarkers before adding a die cut fence and mounting the picture onto card and the corresponding papers. I really love this image (excuse the pun) and think it would make a perfect valentines card.

Later this week I will be sharing the second card in the article -so do pop back!

I am entering the following challenges

That Craft Place - Love / Valentines
Handmade Monday - Handmade Harbour
