Keeping Warm!


Here’s a card for Willow Sketchie Challenge.

This is the sketch:


There has been a change to the rules.Whereas before at least one product from Willow Designs had to be used,now it is open to anything from your crafting stash.It’s also not limited to just cards!

As I still have a way to go on the Christmas card front I thought I’d use this cheeky little chap.He is actually from Willow Designs  and he’s the Keeping Warm download.You do have the freedom to interpret the sketch any way you feel but I’ve been totally boring and pretty much followed it as it stands.

The yummy papers are Daisy and Dandelion A Winter’s Tale.The plainer piece seemed to lend itself well to the wide band across the middle .The dark green hammered card is from my stash.All layers of card and paper have been edged with Metallic Gold Promarker.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and white gel pen has been added to the bobble on his hat and top of his stocking.To create a more fluffy texture I went over the top in a swirling motion whilst the ink was still wet.His eyes have been brightened with the same pen.

The flower and button are from a Dovecraft Christmas Embellishment Kit that I found in my local craft warehouse at a really bargainous price!The ribbons are Dovecraft 99p rolls,too.I couldn’t decide which to choose so I opted for both!An offcut has been threaded through the button as well.
