Daisy Doodles Challenge #47

At Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges we have a new challenge today
The Spool That Stole Christmas
We want to see a card without any ribbon

For my card I have used Christmas Praise which is a fab image for cold and frosty Christmas Cards. You can will receive this image in 3 formats for only $2.
Head over to the Daisy Doodles Store to check it out !

I have used the latest sketch from Pals Paper Arts for the layout. The base card is a dark blue irridescent cardstock that has a lovely shimmer to it. I used a snippet of snowflake paper that is actually a wrapping Paper from Paperchase. It is one of my fave ‘go to’ papers for blue Christmas cards J

The image has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The pale blue is one of the new Flexmarker colours and I love using the flexible brush for large areas as you get this really textured look that you would with a watercolour brush. The snow is the new antique white, love the faint hint of colour that dulls down the bright white the paper was originally. I created extra layers of the church, the star and the tree so I could later the images. I used Woodware puffy applique for the snow on the church room and along the edges of the path, added gold stickles glitter glue to the star in the sky and on the tree and lots of twinkly spots to emulate snowflakes falling.

The sentiment is a wooden plaque that I got from the Hobbycraft sale in January. I got 6 of them for only 49p, bit of a bargain for use on larger cards I thought. I just dressed it up with some stickles glue and called it finished. Quite a simple layout but this them gives the image the emphasis that it deserves. 


I hope you will pop over to the blog to see the lovely creations on there from the rest of the DT and we look forward to seeing your entries in for our ‘Spool That Stole Christmas’ challenge.
