The challenge this week at Craft Your Passion is Under the Sea/Your Favorite Season.We have the fabulous Simply Betty Stamps as our sponsor.Hop on over to the challenge blog for full details on how to play along.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!
The DT were very lucky indeed to be give some new release images to play with.Here I’ve used the cute Frosty Merkid on my card.He’s one of several adorable Merkids from Simply Betty Stamps.I wanted to try something different so I coloured with Copics (recently won on eBay) on kraft card.I really like how it turned out.Then it hit me!There are quite a lot of areas that should be white!I found my white gel pen handy for the smaller areas but as it’s on it’s last legs I didn’t think it could handle the snowman.So out came the Liquid Pearls.As well as looking pretty it added some texture too.I finished the whole thing off with some Baker’s Twine and die cut snowflakes with some more Liquid Pearls added to the centre.
Now as I’m trying desperately NOT to leave it to the last postal date to hurridly finish my Christmas cards (oh yes,2 years running!) and just ‘cos these images are just sooo sweet I couldn’t help but make another card :
This time I’ve used some Polar White Flower Soft on the trims on her hat and clothing plus a ribbon I ruffled.I’ve added a die cut swirl and button flower threaded with Baker’s Twine.She’s called Tiki Merkid.Supplies : Images : Frosty Merkid & Tiki Merkid from Simply Betty Stamps Sentiments : Freebie Christmas Digi Ticket Stamps from The Beary Scrap Blog Colouring Medium : Copic Sketch Markers and Copic Ciao Markers Other Mediums :Inkssentials Opaque White gel pen,White Opal Liquid Pearls,Polar White Flower Soft Papers & Card : DP Basic Grey Jovial 6 x 6 pad,Kraft,dark greeny black card and white pearlescent from stash Tools : X-Cut guillotine,Fiskars Scallop Sentiments border punch,Woodware Inverted Corner punch, Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies Ovals 2,Nestabilities Standard Ovals Large,Marianne Design Snowflakes 1,Swirl from Marianne Circle Frame Set,Joy!Crafts Buttons Sets 2,Big Shot Embellishments : We R Memory Keepers Baker’s Twine,Kars Xmas Ribbon Collection Ribbon
