Whiff of Joy Challenge 5 and Secret Crafter challenge

The Whiff of Joy challenge this week is a fab sketch by Heather. Please go and take a peek at the DT cards, they are truly fab!

For this card I've used Charlie building snowman from Whiff of Joy and I've coloured the image with distress inks and H2O's. The papers are DCWV Christmas stack from last year. The sentiment is Cuddly Buddly and the snowflake stamps are Rubber Stamp Tapestry. Please excuse the appalling sewing, my sewing machine decided it didn't want to play tonight - just when I didn't need that!! It's stitched a pattern that is not even an option GRRRR!!! Let's just say we're not the best of friends lol.

-o-O-o-

Secret Crafters challenge this week is "Blue, White and a little bit of snowflake!" so I thought the Kadoodle Flint Cottage stamp would work great with this challenge. All it took was a touch of glitter (okay - maybe more than just a touch lol) to transform the cottage to a winter scene.

I stamped the Flint Cottage image from The Craft Barn with Adirondak Denim ink and smudged the ink with a damp paintbrush. The topiary trees I have popped up on some silicone to add a bit of dimension. Loads of snowflakes - punched and embossed and even stamped.


Thanks for looking,
