I can't believe another 2 weeks has flown by ! At this rate it will soon be Christmas ......lol.....
So onto the new challenge and this time over on ABC Challenge we would like to see .......'G' is for glitter ! The sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp.
Now this challenge did pose me a small problem, which you may have noticed, I don't like glitter ! So I've made a compromise and used stickles glitter glue, which I can cope with....lol..... just !
First of all I made the background which is done using a torn piece of paper and Broken China DI. I've sponged the DI along the edge of the paper to create the 'hills'. I then used a Clarity tree stamp (which I'd forgotten I'd got!) and also masked off parts of the card and stamped over the top with the same DI. I've stamped a snowflake around the bottom edge of the panel from a Katzelkraft stamp set. The main image is one of my favourite Christmas stamps and is from the same set of Katzelkraft stamps. I've used Midnight Blue Stazon and then dotted some Stickles on certain parts. The sentiment is also from the same set of stamps.
The snowflake punch is a Martha Stewart and I've put a blob of blue Stickles in the centre. The background paper is Basic Grey and I've used my sewing machine to zig zag around the edge.
Quite a simple card in the end but I really like it, you may be seeing more 'hills' in the near future!
Well I hope you're all managing to stay wrapped up and warm. I had to use my hot water bottle for the first time this week. I'm also trying to fight off a cold, everyone around me seems determined to give it to me. It may come to wearing a gas mask soon !
Hope you're able to join us for this challenge.
Thanks for looking
