Light p-up your Christmas :)



I’m delighted to be chosen as Guest Designer at Lexi’s Creations this fortnight where the theme is Snow.Stop by to check out full details of the challenge and the fab prize on offer.Don’t forget to check out the DT’s fantastic creations.

Here I’ve used the adorable Christmas Lights Scruffles from Fairy Dust Crafts.He was a joy to work with :)Printed straight onto the kraft base and coloured with Copic Ciao Markers plus some white gel pen highlights.Doesn’t show too well but the lights have Glossy Accents on them and the stems of the bulbs have been coloured with silver gel pen.Some fluffy,snowy texture has been given to his hat trims with Flower Soft.The sentiment,a freebie from a magazine from last year,has been stamped at a jaunty angle.For design purposes you understand and not ‘cos I can’t stamp straight…lol…OK believe what you like 😉 A couple of strips of washi tape,die cut pine branches and a few brads have been used to embellish the card.

    Simply darling!!! I love the Kraft base and your coloring on this little guy. The Flower Soft is just perfect for the fur trim on his hat and love the design you used for this. Very nice!
