ASM - Holiday ...

.... Hello all!  You had lots of fun with our Make Your Mark challenge last week, so many super cards.  This week at Addicted to Stamps and More! we have our Holiday challenge.  Your project must have a holiday theme - any holiday - Halloween, Valentine, Easter, summer hols, whatever takes your fancy.  Our challenge this week is sponsored by Eureka Stamps and the winner will get three free digi images.  I've used one of their super images on my Christmas card:

Sleigh Presents - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Eureka Stamps - Sleigh with Presents; Waltzingmouse - Tis the Season
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Fleur de Lis Squares (S4-318) #4, Squares Sm (S4-128) #7
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gold Textured Mirri Card; Copic Markers; Glamour Dust; Wink of Stella Brushes - Clear, Orange, Gold, Pink, Blue, Green


I printed the sleigh on white card and coloured it with Copic markers.  I used lots of the tips I got from the Online Card Class about Copic Markers.  I created the background by lightly dotting very pale colours around the sleigh to suggest snow, as well as creating a ground.  I added lots of sparkle to the image, using Wink of Stella brushes on the main image and adding glitter to the ground and snow.  I kept the inside of the card really simple - a gold mat and a very bold sentiment on the white panel.

For more holiday themed inspiration cards - check out the blog to see what my Team mates have made.  Before I go though, here's a close up of the sleigh - the photo is deliberately out of focus as I find this really shows the sparkle well.

Have fun with the challenge and I look forward to seeing your projects.  See you soon.

You certainly learnt a lot in the class. Your colouring here I spotted immediately as amazing! And the soft appearance of snow looks great...and how you managed to photo all that lovely glitter, I can never get it to show so well. Stunning card Deborah x
