CDAC PC10 Beary Sweet Winter

It’s Round 10 of the Progressive Challenge at CDAC  and we have some lovely

Bringing In The New Year

 themed images for this round. Team A have the pleasure in bringing you some gorgeous samples for the images for this round. 

My card is using a cute image called Beary Sweet Winter from Digi’s by Phooka.

I have combined 3 digital images together to make this card. I used a previous freebie Fireworks design by Anne Fenton for the background, placed the cute bear in front and used a sentiment stamp from Shannon’s Sentiments adding the 2012 with a font in the graphics programme. I love the flexibility you have with digis and that you can combine images to make something unique for your own cards.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and I have used a clear Sakura glitter pen on the stars, adding lots of star shaped and small gems from Papermania in clear and blue.

I have used a sheet of pearlescent card for the base card, adding a piece of metallic card with embossed silver stars. The image is matted onto some more card and raised on 3d foam. The holographic stars have been in my stash for years and I threaded some metal brads from Papermania through, adding them to the top of the card to look like they are part of the fireworks.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year, I hope that 2012 has started off well for you and will bring you much happiness and good health.
