Merry Christmas!

I'm a bit late posting this as I was having major issues with Blogger which now (cross fingers) seem to be fixed.

This week's challenge at CHNC is Use some twine or ribbon.  I used ribbon at the top of the pennant shape.


I have used a digital paper, image and sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers.  

I followed this sketch at Stella Says Sketch (challenge cancelled)

Hello Friend!

The theme in our New Zealand Card Swap exchange for the month of July is to create a book binding card.  This is the card that I sent:


I followed a you tube video tutorial for a Book Binding Card.

I have used two digital papers from a set by Lozzy called Ashby.  The image is from Limited Runs and the sentiment is from Imagine That! Digis.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also dotted some gems around.
