Every snowflake is unique.

How is everyone getting on with their Christmas cards?
There's only 102 sleeps to go!!!   :-)

Here's another card I have made to go on the Christmas pile.


I followed the challenge sketch over at Sketch and Stash.
and my newest stash is these Memory Box papers.. they are just gorgeous 
and if you head over to Crafty Emma's Store you can grab some before they all go!

I have been trying to be a bit bolder with my colouring, using deeper shades of my copics,
but it was a bit tricky with the red, because I only have one deep red pen.
I tried to lighten areas with my blender pen, but I can't get on with that at all.
It just seems to creat an ugly 'water' mark and make the paper look like it's been rubbed too hard!!
Practice, practice,  I suppose!


Stamp - Pink Gem Mimi with Snowman, coloured with Copics. I also added some  Liquid Pearls 'Platinum' to her coat buttons and some Stickles Glitter ' Frosted Lace' to the snowman and ground.
Design Paper - Memory Box 'Spiceberry'.
Snowflakes cut with Slice machine (Fa la la design card) and then covered with glitter.

This is beautifully coloured and well done with adding another Christmas card to the pile. You might try using a reddish brown to blend your red with.

Gorgeous card Caroline :-) the image is adorable and I def need some of these papers !!! :-)

as for copics ,, the blender pen is misnamed ,, it is not really a blender ,, think of it more of an eraser !!
you need to blend with lighter shades, not the blender ,,,, more expense I think !!! :-)


thanks for joining us on the Sketch and Stash Challenge :-)
luv
