The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

I thought I’d dress Snowman and friends by Crafty Sentiments Designs up in some bright pastel shades using Copic Ciao Markers to break away from the traditional colours I usually go for.Some Frosted Lace Stickles has been added beneath him for a sparkly,snowy finish.The background strip has been stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using white detail powder.Pleased at how crisp it came out as they were magazine freebie stamps.The panel was then wrapped with some fluffy fibres I came across in my long lost stash whilst I was sorting out.The sentiment was part of the freebies stamps and the same technique applied.The bottom of the card has been dry embossed with another magazine freebie folder.Yet another card for next Christmas ūüėÄ

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Crafty Sentiments Designs as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Blitz with present¬†by¬†Crafty Sentiments Designs¬†could be used for any gift giving occasion.Here I’ve chosen Christmas.Her clothing and neatly wrapped parcel have been paper pieced and the rest has been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.The papers and colours are both non traditional but I thought the pastel shades would add some pretty festive cheer ūüôā The background panel has been created using a patchwork style design onto kraft card.Some complimetary ric-rac,from the same collection,has been stretched across the bottom.The greeting is stamped directly onto the base.The wooden wreath was a little too golden yellow to coordinate with the kraft so a couple of ink pads were used to tone it down a bit.This shall be another Christmas card for 2017 – I’ve now made 4 in total for NEXT year!!
