Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - White & One Other Colour

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT card.

***************************************


 This week it's Wendy's turn to set the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...and she has chosen:

'White & One Other Colour'
(You may use other colours on your image)

I decided to use blue as my additional colour...and made a Christmas card...my 100th one so far this year!!! The image I've used is 'Snowy' (by Penny Black), which I coloured using watercolour pencils. For the bavkground I embossed some Core'Dinations card with my 'Swiss Dots', 'Snowflakes' and 'Ice Crystas' folders...lightly sanding over the raised areas. I distressed the edges a little, and added some layered Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs Creatables snowflakes.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenge:

Helen what would you do without your cuttlebug lol. I am ashamed to say I do not use it to its full extent and must really start as your cards are always beautiful and the distressing compliments then perfectly.

Gorgeous card Helen, that has to be my favourite snowy. Congrats on your 100th Christmas card. I've just counted mine and I've got 43. On the plus side I've got the inserts in them.

Hope this works this time, I've been trying to comment for ages. My broadband is almost unusable tonight!!
