ABC Christmas Challenge - O is for...

Today, I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge, where the theme is:

'O is for Old'
The image stamp/digi must be at least a year old.

We are sponsored for this challenge by Wild Rose Studio


One lucky winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Wild Rose Studio store!

This time, I used one of my oldest (and most favourite!) Christmas stamps...it is of course 'Snowy' by Penny Black. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some Glossy Accents to his red nose, and some 'Crystal' Stickles to the snow. The papers are all from the 'Eskimo Kisses' pad by BasicGrey - I distressed the edges using ink and my scissors, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I cut the snowflakes using Marriane Designs Creatables and Cuttlebug dies, then coated them with more Stickles. The lace is from Hobbycraft.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from some of my lovely DT buddies, please stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge.
