Twinkly Christmas

Hello. Happy Monday to you all.

A scheduled post today as we are driving up to Preston today to visit my eldest son.
I began by covering a 6 inch square card blank with green linen effect card and then cutting a Tonic layering square from a paper from Bobunny's Elf Magic paper pad. I matted and layered another paper from the pad onto another piece of green card and attached it to the card as shown. I then wrapped a piece of Christmas ribbon (from the Ribbon Girl) around the card and attached the whole thing to the card base. 
I cut a Die'sire circle doily from another paper from the pad and attached it to the card as shown.
The image is Christmas candle from LOTV which I coloured with the following Promarkers - 

  • coat - holly and pine
  • scarf and gloves - apple cider, herb garden, berry red, ruby and crimson
  • skin - stain, blush and dusky pink
  • hair - terracotta and burnt umber
  • shoes - praline, saddle brown and burnt sienna
  • candle - ivory, pastel beige, praline, saddle brown, gold, orange and tulip yellow
  • snow - icicle
  • sky - pastel blue

I cut the image out with a Tonic layering square, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and matted and layered it onto a piece of green card. I added lots of glitter to the hood and snow and then attached the whole thing to the card base with glue gel.

I stamped a sentiment from LOTV's winter wishes stamp set, cut it out with scissors (I drew around the inner part of the die) and matted it onto a Spellbinder's Tranquil moments cut from green card. I attached it to the card with glue gel.
To finish I added some pearls from the Ribbon Girl.
