Winter




Hi crafter's

This card will be my entry for the Clarity challenge which is called winter. I have used an A4 white base card for this design. On a piece of white card stamp the quirky house and trees in black Archival ink then colour in with colouring pencils in light and dark blue, turquoise and purple, I use Derwent Artist pencils. Cut this out with a die cut circle, I used one with eyelets around the edge. Now cut a plain circle out which is slightly larger, colour with denim ink. Then to give a frosty feel cover with crackle accents and sprinkle glitter over whilst still wet. Leave to dry, this means being very patient. For the background I stamped the Curly Curve twice on to a strip of white card then coloured it in with the same colours as before. I then blended denim ink at the bottom and stream at the top. Glue this strip on to the bottom half of the base card. Next I took the verse stamp and covered the bottom two lines with a post-it note inked up with black ink then stamped the words at the top. Repeat this covering the top two lines this time then stamp at the bottom. Ink up the miniature robin and stamp so that it is standing on the strip, colour in softly with the same blues and greens. Glue the circles together and attach to the card. That's about it for this time, hope you like it.

Happy crafting

Sally
