Mission Accomplished!

The final day of the Holiday Chaos Challenges at Bugaboo Stamps and this time it is Bingo with the option to use the provided freebie image.

I have opted to go diagonally across from bottom left to top right and to use the freebie image.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Crabbie Cat Christmas
acrylic mittens stamp
X-Press It card
black card
red spotty DP
A5 card blank
Diamond Sprinkles – Glimmer Jewels
small gems

Crabbie Cat with the sentiment and the mittens images are printed/stamped onto X-Press It card and coloured with Copics then trimmed and matted on black card.  The fur on the hat has been covered with the Diamond Sparkles. The mittens are fussy cut.

The front of the card base is covered with the spotty designer paper and the matted image attached on top. The mittens are glued either side of the sentiment.

Finally 3 gems are stuck down the side of the topper from the top right corner.

I think I have covered the three areas:
3 layers – image, black mat, spotty paper
mittens – added to sentiment
gllitter/bling – glitter on hat, gems on side

And that is it – phew! It has been fun taking part in all the themes and I have used images that normally I would stay clear of, so quite a challenge. I rather expect that there will not be quite so many posts from now on, especially as Christmas approaches and all the preparations that go with celebrating the season.

Thank you 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.

    The red dots paper looks so festive with this Catitude image. Made me smile at his expression and the fur is a wonderful dimensional detail. Great coloring on the image too! TFS & Merry Christmas. Hugs
