Christmas is coming

One sure sign of the approach of Christmas is the glitter on the carpet. This week Bugaboo Stamps have started their week of Holiday Chaos. Day 1’s theme is  ‘All that sparkles’ so I went to town!

Materials used:  
Bugaboo Stamps – Ornament
white card
various glitters
silver pen
acrylic sentiment stamp
15cm square card blank
patterned silver mirri card
Copic pens
Wink of Stella Shimmer Clear

I made up a collection of ornaments altering the orientation and the size to get a variety. I then ‘coloured’ them with glitter and used a silver pen for the hangers. I used grey Copics just to add a bit of shadowing and used matching colour Copics to colour in the highlights on the baubles before adding a Wink of Stella over the top.

Finally the image was trimmed to size and matted on Silver mirri card then attached to the card base.

Now all I need to do is clear up the glitter that is everywhere!

Thanks for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
