Snow folk!




Our November challenge over at STAMPING SENSATIONS is now up and running and this month it's all about
ONE LAYER CHRISTMAS

 This month we have an amazing prize up for grabs
In fact a first and second prize sponsored by




This month I got my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens out again to do a bit of watercolouring for my background. I am not one for doing single layer cards so this was a challenge but I did enjoy getting messy again.
I stamped my Molly Blooms snowmen stamp using memento black ink then carefully added my blue spectrum noir glitter pen around the edges of the stamped area.
I spread the blue glitter pen ink, using a broad brush soaked in water, across the card to the edges. I then added splodges of water while the ink was still wet and after letting it soak slightly I mopped up the excess with a paper towel, which gave me the lighter parts. I filled these with hand drawn snowflakes using a white gel pen.
The snowmen have been coloured using my promarkers and a bit of glitter glue.
I then finished the card with some faux stitching using the white gel pen.
What you think? I'm pretty pleased with it. I do love this technique which I saw Sheena Douglas do.

I am entering this into


Right that's me for a few days. Hope you get time to enter our challenge this month.
Enjoy your day.
