A very cool yule

It’s Willow Sketchie Challenge time!This week we have a fabby sketch by Pauline :

For full details on how to play along and see the fabulous DT creations please pop along to the challenge site.There’s a voucher to spend online at Willow Designs waiting for one lucky winner too!

For my card I’ve used the delightful Winnie in Earmuffs from the Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD-rom available at Willow Designs.I’ve gone for a slightly different look,well for me anyway,by printing the image onto smooth cardstock and watercolouring  with an Aquamarine AquaMarker using a waterbrush.I added some glittery tinsel stuff that was a freebie in a past issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine to add fluffiness to her earmuffs.I cut the panels from some more white card and embossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and a Papermania A Silent Night – Snowflakes one.I used the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser around the edges before applying some glitter glue,another Cardmaking and Paper craft mag freebie (from last year!) to carry through the aqua tones.I added some white organza ribbon to pretty it up.

    Hi Lisa!
    Fantastic angles, and I just love those ear Muffs!!!! Your image is beautiful. What I really love about your card is the monochromatic style that you have used. It takes guts to pull that off and you have! It is really beautiful. I love the corners and WOW, following a sketch is NOT all that easy! I wish you LOTS of luck in your challenges Lisa, and of course in ours at Forever Friends. Divine Love, Samara
