How Many Digis Images Can You Fit on One Card? LOL! Morning everyone, brrr it's a bit nippy! I've been bursting to post this next card but had to wait for daylight to take the pics! The neighbours now think I'm deranged as was in the back garden in my pj's trying to get it!!! It's a very dull and grey day here and I needed natural light and no flash on the camera!!
We have a good size garden and my early New Years Resolution is to spend more time out there sorting it out now the children are a bit older - particularly as its the reason we bought the house in the first place! I love my garden - in all seasons apart from the dull, grey and wet really!
Now, enough waffling/teasing and onto the card. This card will be entered into these challenges;
Dottie's World - 3 Snowflakes
Crafty Creations - Traditional Christmas colours
My Time to Craft - Yuletide Wishes
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes (plus DT call)
I certainly had fun here, this is what I came up with....................
Even Pete likes this - too bad he's already got his card LOL! I've been wanting to play with some of the background images from the Pixie Chicks downloads over at Charmed Cards and Crafts. I also wanted to see what I could do with some acetate! I've used an 8x8 card for this and sized all the downloads to fit right. The fence background was printed twice to allow me to cut and layer the signpost. I coloured the images with copics and watercolour pencils - adding red berries to the climbing plant to add to the Christmas feel. There is A LOT of layering on this and the acetate works perfectly to protect it all. The snowflake stickers, (papermania I think) were added on top of this to add further dimension and at the bottom I added some white flower soft.
Thisis the card underneath the acetate. The sentiment is also a download from the Pixie Chicks range though I changed the colour of the text in photoshop for this project.
White flower soft was added in parts and some areas was chosen to have a dusting of glamour dust to give a lovely frosty effect. Glamour Dust was added to the wings of the pixies and parts of their clothing.
Well thats is from me for today. Will be packing away my stuff soon for Christmas and banishing it to the loft in order to free up the dining room. So far keep finding more excuses to keep it down - like "just one more challenge" LOL! Take care everyone, I hope you like what you've seen and thankyou for looking!
