Lexi's Creations second challenge. This fortnight it is a shaped card and I'm so glad I found this new blog as I've used Pengy their image, fab digi's. Well after watching Create &Ccraft on TV the other day and they were advertising Snow Globes templates... i thought I'd make my own, why spend all that money especially at this time of year, tough acetate recycled off a posh present, practiced first on sheets of paper to get the measurements right to fit my envelope 14 cm square. Transformed the whole thing onto card and noticed a few do's and don'ts for next time. So the image is coloured with Koh-I-Noor pencils and blended after, this penguin is no ordinary colour, a bit funky to go with the challenge A Spoonfull of Sugar 'Non- traditional colours christmas card', Digital Tuesday #35 'Christmas Sparkle' and last but not least Creative Card Crew #39 'Christmas', a new one to me! Everything from stash, mirri board, sequined ribbon, gems on ear muff, sentiment from Crafters Companion range. I could have put the post on the inside but to make it different, added it outside, acetate had the frosting on it already, simple enough for me...own personalised stamp on the last pic from Scrapmagasinet, hope you like, any comments always appreciated...sorry for long post, my daughter showed me how to crop properly on Microsoft Photo Editor today and she left after showing me one and doing the rest was abig big chore, but we are here at last!
