Cute Card Thursday Challenge

The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday this week is snow or snowflakes which is pretty easy at this time of the year so I knocked this small one up quickly. I coloured in my Penny Black image with copics and then to add a 3D element to the card I used my Snow writer to add snow in all the relevant places. When this was dry, I added Crystal Stickles to the snow to make it glisten. I then mounted to some red mirror board. The background paper is the Christmas stack from DCWV. The sentiment is PC generated and I finished off with some brads and gems.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Paper- Christmas stack (DCWV); Assorted cardstock; Mirror board; Copics; Snow writer; Brads (Lakeland); Stickles (Ranger); Gems (Lakeland); Sentiment- PC generated

The perfect Christmas card Steph with my fave PB Christmas stamp ever! Love your colouring, the paper and those gorgeous little boots! Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment today. About the sponging. I use an ordinary bath sponge cut up, load the sponge dab off on scrap paper so there aren't any heavy splodges, I start sponging away from the card/image on the scrap paper and work in circular movements on to the card/image which gives quite a nice smooth effect. Sometimes I like to add a bit more texture and then I dab where I want it heavier with slightly more ink, depends on the image etc. When I first tried this I practiced on scrap card to get the feel of it. Hope that helps. Chris x
