Mr Frosty

Another Christmas card today from me
It is getting nearer and really need to make more cards
Today I have used a stamp by Whimsy called
I have coloured him with copics and added a few touches of glitter and glossy accents.

I have been having a little play with making background paper with a technique shown to me by 
friends Kim and Kay
You use liquid pearls and cling film and dap it onto your card
Then when it is dry go over it with distress ink.
It give a lovely effect although my photo probable does not show it so well.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges
Crafty Calender Challenge - It's all about Christmas
Christmas stampin all year long- Anything goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Christmas is coming

Candibean - Izzy's stroll

Hello, I have been busy colouring a new stamp I got called
Izzy's Stroll by Candibean
I have gone for a simple look on the card with just a few punched flowers and a butterfly
The butterfly is by Martha Stewart and probable one of my used punches and the flowers are a old punch by tonic that I have had for years.

The sentiment is another item I have had for years but so usable 
The image is coloured with distress inks and I have used 
Langton extra smooth watercolour pad to stamp on
