Owl be distressed by Christmas

Another Willow Sketchie Challenge for you.This week we get to play with Kate’s fabby sketch :

This week’s super prize is A Spot of Gardening Digi Stamp along with a ProMarker colouring tutorial from Willow Designs!

My card is made with more leftovers from the samples I created for the Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD-rom shows on Create and Craft.The pre-coloured image is Walter and Mr Robin and I’ve cut and layered Mr Robin from another image printed on the same sheet to give some dimension.I’ve die cut the image using Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies Eastern Rounds.The wonderful papers are from the CD-rom as well.All edges  have been inked with Pear Tart Memento Ink and roughed up using the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.I’ve added some faux stitching with the fine tip of a Whispers Brush Marker.All layers have been matted onto Papermania Christmas Cardstock.A length of Kars Christmas Collection Ribbon and some white Dovecraft brads complete the card.

Marks Finest Paper : Use your scraps
