Snowy Friends

002

Hello crafty friends – twice in the space of a few days!  I just wanted to share this card that I have made using a digital stamp by fromtheheartstamps.com called ‘Candy Cane for Snowman’.  This is the Digital Stamp Image of the Month Challenge for August so I bought it and thought I’d give the challenge a go – my first ever challenge!  I find colouring white items on an image quite tricky so I was actually challenging myself here!  I used my Spectrum Noirs to colour this cute little image and used pale blues and pale greys to try and get some definition on the white parts.This image also comes with several sentiments. I’m really pleased how it turned out and in the future will not shy away from ‘colouring’ white space! Plus it’s another Christmas Card ticked off my to-do list!

I also used Forever Friends ‘Kraft Notes’ patterned papers, Spellbinders square, circle and label dies, I think the snowflake dies are by Marianne Dies and Papermania Glitter Dome Spots.

I think that will be it from me now until the weekend… but you never know 🙂

Take care and enjoy your week – Karen 🙂
