Lemon Shortbread Challenge - Tuesday 21 November 2017

  It is time for another challenge over at the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog.

The topic is "anything goes"

Here is project as inspiration with this theme.
 I have made a Christmas card using the image called "Winter Fairy".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and added Stickles glitter glue to her hat/wings/coat edge and dress edge.  For the background of the image I used a Versamark ink pad and a small snowflake stamp and stamped around the image.  I then brushed over some pearlescent blue chalk.  I added some pearl drops to the centre of the snowflakes.

The backing papers I have used are from a Creative Crafting World Yuletide CD that I won recently.

I have finished the card off with some lace with some gingham ribbon threaded through it, sentiment off the CD, 3 dimensional snowflake made out of the backing papers and finished off with a button.

Promarkers used: 

Face/arms - Saffron, oatmeal and Putty
Hair - Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna and Cocoa
Dress/coat/wings/hat - Cobalt Blue, Arctic Blue and Blue Pearl.
