Dear Santa ‘owl’ be good!


It’s the lovely Claire’s turn to play hostess at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week and here’s her fabby sketch :

She has also set the theme Christmas in August.Don’t forget you can either use the sketch and/or theme.You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

I’m sorry to say this will be Claire’s last challenge with us 😦 Really gonna miss you and your beautiful Willow creations and sketches.

For my card I’ve used Dear Santa clear stamp  by Willow Designs and I’ve coloured him (or could be her in girly colours) with ProMarkers.Made some Liquid Pearls snow, dotted some snowflakes and added some more to the pom pom on his little hat for more interest and texture.I chose a simple colour scheme of red,white and kraft.The papers are from the Walter & Winnie does Christmas CD-Rom also by Willow Designs.After sticking the first layer of paper directly onto the base card I cut up another card blank to mat everything else onto.I dug out some buttons and grosgrain ribbon from an old Christmas embellishment kit to add as a few extras.As the image already had some text I didn’t feel the need for any more words so in effect I’ve mirrored the sketch.

Image : Dear Santa clear stamp from Willow Designs
Mediums : ProMarkers,White Opal Liquid Pearls
Papers & Card : PP from Walter & Winnie does Christmas CD-Rom,Craft UK Limited Kraft 6x 6 Card Blank
