It was Choccy’s turn to choose an image for us to use and we have this fabulous image Alice from Beary Dust Stamps. She is such a sweet image and lovely to work with.

I coloured the image using Promarkers & Flexmarkers and kept to a palette of blue & white with colouring for hair and skin only. I used a Nestabilities die to cut the image out and the darker blue mat to layer it on.

The main background paper is from Creative Cardmaking magazine. They have a lovely selection of Christmas papers by Kanban and I thought it looked lovely with this image and not at all Cristmassy. Just goes to show just because it is part of a Christmas collection doesn’t necessarily dictate how it HAS to be used……

I used a scrap of wedgewood blue card to layer the image on and it looked so plain, it was already stick down so I was limited with my options until I spied some white rub ons that I had won as a challenge prize. I am pleased with the effect and I think it has made it a much prettier card. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
