Holiday Chaos Day 2

Day two and the theme at Bugaboo’s Holiday Chaos week is a sketch.

Here is my take on it.


Materials used: 
Bugaboo Stamps – Christmas SB Ornament
X-Press It card
Copic pens
silver pen
embossing pen
clear embossing powder
silver mirri card
purple card
A5 white card blank
border die (x-cut I think)
acrylic greetings stamp
black archival ink pad

I reversed the image so that the little girl was facing into the card, printed her out at the size I wanted and coloured her in with Copics and a silver pen on the bauble. To give the bauble a bit of shine I went over it with an embossing pen and used clear embossing powder.

I cut the mat and the border strip from silver mirri card and used some purple card for the centre mat.

Finally I added the greeting at the bottom of the card.

Thanks for dropping in. 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, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
