Hi, hope that everyone is in good health, and that you're having a lovely week so far! :) Today I'm going to share with you a card I made this weekend, following the lovely sketch that talented Mumur has created. You can find it on Friday's Sketchers challenge blog here. I used this lovely Sarah Kay image ... it is one of my most favourite!! These cuties are amazingly sweet!! I really had fun colouring them in ;) Thank you Summer :0)
I used Papermania Naughty but Nice Christmas papers, and a piece of self coloured piece of tissue for layering the top left piece. I chose to distress all the layers, and I really liked the effect ♥
The main image is coloured with watercolours, and I used some glitter pens to highlight some details : their bows, the candle light glow, and the hollies. I also used antique linen distress ink for their music papers, their shoes and dabbed around the image; after I roughly tore the edges for an antique feel. (Long sentence this!! lol)
As embellies, for the bottom corner I used a fely snowflake, highlighted with pink ink at the edges, a small pink rose, and two holly leaves at the back (Papermania). It is quite an unusual combination, but I liked the final result. I'm good at these kind of combinations!! :)
For the top left, I used a piece of lace for a corner, then I topped it up with another felt snowflake. I pinned it in place with a silver star brad and a pink rhinestone.
I hope that you like it, thanks for looking and reading this post. We all have a reason to sing our thanks and praise to Jesus, like these sweet little "angels" are doing. He is God with us!!
I hope that you are joining us at the Cupcake Craft challenge Blog this week, we have a sketch for you, and we are looking forward for your creations.
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
