and welcome to my blog's newest followers! I am so very happy that you've decided to join me on my crafting journey!!
In my neck of the woods, it has been frosty and white for a couple of weeks now, which is just perfect for exercising those shovelling muscles :( and, more importantly, staying inside and crafting :). I find a fresh snowfall is such a great source of inspiration for creating winter projects, which is also just perfect because that's the theme for this month's challenge over at Creatalicious Challenges.
Our sponsor this month is Stamp Fairy, who have generously provided the team with a choice of digital images. For my card, I chose Barry Winter 2. He's super cute and was really fun to colour.
Image - Barry Winter 2 from Stamp Fairy, coloured with Prisma pencils blended with Sansodor. I added Stampin' Up dazzling diamonds for the snow, rock candy stickles to the hat and the snow on the birdhouse was made with liquid applique which was also covered with dazzling diamonds before puffing it up with a heat tool. I love the dimensional sparkly look this gives.
Paper - Stampin' Up card base and Bo Bunny from the Snowfall collection. The edges were distressed, torn and inked with DI before applying bits of picket fence crackle paint.
Sentiment - Amy R Snowman Sayings
Other - lace for framing the image; Stampin' Up snowflake die cut out from card layered with a sheet of adhesive and then glittered with transparent glitter; TH banner die inked with DI before applying picket fence crackle paint along the top for a snowy look; large glittery snowflake was from Michael's in the Christmas section.
