Winter Wonderland

Challenge #34 Sketch http://sundaysketchandstamp.blogspot.com/
Challenge #Sing Song http://www.simonsaysstampblog.blogspot.com/  winter wonderland



For this project I used two sketches that were very similar sweetsketchwednesday and sundaysketch as below




The theme of this card is Winter Wonderland (song).

The stamp I chose to use was drawn by the artist Christine Haworth - she does the poppets and fairy collections of which I have a number.  The image coloured using copics and I used a silver glitter pen to colour the stems the little fairy is holding and her crown.  I used stickles to enchance the snow and wings of the fairy.  I used a silver caligraphy pen to edge the border of the image.

The papers were from a Create and Craft CD Rom Luxury Christmas papers.  I used Angelina fibres behind the image topper and added the snowflakes which were cut from  Marianne dies.  I used the ribbon to create the faux stripped effect as on the sketches.
