Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Manga

The theme of this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is:


Which gives us the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the Secret Crafter's own Manga stamps. I've used the digital version of 'Bird Fairy' (she's also available as a clear polymer stamp), to make a Christmas card. The papers are from the 'Tis the Season' collection by Bo Bunny, and I distressed all of the edges with my distressing tool, then added some faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The snowflakes were cut using Cuttlebug dies, and the image was cut out using a circle Nestie (available here at the Secret Crafter). I used Stardust Stickles (available here at the Secret Crafter) to add some sparkle to the snowflakes, and the fur trim on Bird Fairy's dress.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Today sees the release of two fabulous new Secret Crafter Manga stamps...with a Christmas theme:

Both of the new digital stamps are now available to buy from the Secret Crafter.

For more Manga inspiration, please check out the fabulous samples by my lovely Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge DT buddies.
