This is my first challenge of 2011 and the theme of Pile It On this week is Anything new - what a great challenge to use all those new christmas items - I am!
This is my first project over Christmas as I've struggled to do anything over the holidays - think I've been in hibernation mode!
For this project I've done a Christmas card purely because I wanted to use this Magnolia image I won earlier in the month but with the holidays I've only just received.
Firstly I used two rubber stamps to create this main image and then coloured with copics. Having only had my prisma pencils for a few days I then had a go at rendering the image - a technique I am hoping to master in the next few months or so.
I cut the image out and then distressed the edges both with a paper distress tool and with inks. I added some white smooch spritz ink before adding stickles to the candy cane and Tilda wings for a bit more sparkle!
I embellished with a paper flower cut with Marianne dies, some paper flowers, pearl flourishes, heart, ribbon and charm.
