In a Sweet Pea Dream - Challenge 3
Over at the In a Sweet pea Dream Challenge Blog the challenge is Christmas. I haven't got any of the lovely Sweet Pea Christmas stamps so have adapted one I already had using typical Christmas colours of red and green. I have coloured the image with Promarkers/Copics and the sky has been filled in with chalks. I then tore the edge of the image with my X-cut tearing ruler and then distressed the edges with a glitter chalk (these ones are more like a paste and a little more difficult to use but I thought perfect for the edges). I have then layered the image onto some scraps of paper and put some leaf brads in the corners which I have had since I first started cardmaking and never used. The backing papers are two scraps leftover from a Crafty Ann's Design Team card and the bottom piece is a scrap leftover from a piece of Basic Grey paper. The card is then finished off with some poinsettias from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop which I have painstakingly cut out, a ticket sentiment and a ribbon bow. Certainly a non-traditional Christmas card.
This card also fits the following challenges:
Little Red Wagon - Something old/something new - old is the brads and new is the ribbon bow
