I ♥ Promarkers blog and the theme this week is very topical as we want to see your projects including Snowflakes. I am sure you're all like me and busy making Christmas Cards at this time of year, so hopefully this challenge will fit right in and help you to increase your stock of cards made. Our prize sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen - who wouldn't love a £10 gift voucher to spend in her store?
I wanted to keep my DT card for this challenge 'clean' and 'crisp' so used only two colours. I love the shiny dark red against the white and this lovely Santa was one of the stamps from the sets by Inkadinkado which I 'acquired' during my recent trip to Florida ! I think he has a lovely jolly face and you can't help but smile when you look at him. He was coloured with Promarkers and I added Glamour Dust over Glossy Accents on his hat and some Stardust Stickles on his hair and beard.
The scalloped circle was cut with a nestie then embossed with a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I cut out the small red poinsettias with a 'punch and emboss' set by Nellie Snellen and punched out the snowflakes from the same shiny red card as the scalloped circle before adding a clear gem to the centre of each. The white background layer was embossed in my Cuttlebug using a template by The Crafters Workshop. It's plastic and is ideal to use as a mask for painting or spritzing, but with the correct 'sandwich' in my 'bug it works really well for embossing.
It's now over to you, so get those snowflakes fluttering down on to the I ♥ Promarkers blog, I can't wait to see your creations.
Til I see you again - Happy Crafting !
