Hi Susan here, this is my DT card for Fussy and Fancy this week!
The Fussy and Fancy Challenge #14 has a theme 'Christmas in July', it runs until Friday 16th but get your entries in before 8pm Thursday 15th for a chance of winning a $15 gift certificate from our sponsor Simon Says Stamps. Try and have a go, you will at least have one christmas card done then for the coming season!!
Back to my card.... I have chosen a great sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge, and I have used a selection of backing papers from DCWV - Christmas Scrapbook Stack. They are a fabulous set of papers, funky! and cute, just right for my image!!! I have kept my colour scheme to a traditional fun red and green. I mat and layered all the papers onto a plain green card and then I distressed all the edges before I glittered them with stickles.
The ribbon as usual comes from our local market.
Isn't this the most adorable fairy. the image is a wooden based stamp from Penny Black and it is called Christmas Fairy. Love her, we have had this stamp for ages and have used it time and time again.
Keeping to my colour scheme I used Pro-Markers to colour it in, then I inked the background slightly before I distressed the edges and glittered them using stickles, you can't have too much sparkle at Christmas!!!
This is a close up of my handmade Poinsetta flowers, I made these using a petal punch, and cutting various sections off the petals before shaping them into the flowers, the brad in the centre is a fluffy texture.
This charm I bought on holiday in Witchita a long time ago!! I thought it looked just right here and seemed to match the stocking in the fairies hand!!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
