But less of my family-life waffle! As it's Friday that means it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz! There were some great entries last week in the 3-2-1 challenge - and congratulations to our winner! This week the lovely Suzie has chosen 'Christmas' as our theme - so time to get festive everyone! The prize this week is sponsored by
and the winner can pick 3 packs of die cuts!
There are so many lovely Christmas stamps about - with more being launched all the time! - but I picked one I already had from LOTV (you might have guessed lol!) - and apologies, it's yet another 'red&green' Christmas card!
This stamp is called 'Christmas Candle' - and she is gorgeous! I just love that snuggly looking coat & hood!
I've actually coloured the green coat with copics - yes, I finally bought a few pens to try, so still practicing and learning! I do like the brush tip though, but perhaps my blending technique could do with some more practice! I've used promarkers for the other colours, with some added glitter on her hood, for the snow and around the candle flame - shame it doesn't show up better on the photo!
The sentiment is also from LOTV and stamped onto kraft card.
The cute little poinsettias were made with a Marianne die, and the fir branch is from Spellbinders 'Fall Foliage'. The snowflake backing paper is from LOTV - Krafty Christmas.
I've used a Tonic border punch on the red & green, with a red satin ribbon & a 'parcel' button.
Hope you like it! So do dig out the tinsel & glitter and join in this week at CraftyCatz!
Back soon, Kim x
