My first Christmas-card (DT Make it Crafty)

Hi everyone!

After a week of cold and coughing I am back with a new DT-card for Make it Crafty. I have had a LOT of fun with this scene and I am truly wishing that if you haven't tried to colour up a scene, dare to try! It's so much fun and you get to be so very proud of your work afterwards. :) 

This time I have used these stamps; Fairy Twinkles, Tinkles and the Christmas Elves House. And this card does not only containing this month's 1$ digistamp (Twinkles), but I am also aiming to inspire you to try out our new Sketch-challenge in the Make it Crafty- fan group!



And this is my card, with a little Christmas theme as you can see ;) I have used a gorgeous snow-die from Joy of Craft at the top of the card. The little snowflakes are cut with a punch from Martha Stewart and chalked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I have also used gold-coloured punchinella behind the big doily. 





Here's little Tinkles. I have coloured her with Distress Ink Pads;
Suit and hat: Mowed Lawn, Faded Jeans, Barn Door
The belt and shadows: Black Sooth
The knot: Barn Door
The bells: Squeezed Lemon, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo
Hair: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
Face: Faber Castell pencils for skincolour







And here's Twinkles, the 1$ digi stamp of October.
Hair: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
Eyes: Mowed Lawn
Dress: Barn Door, Mowed Lawn, Faded Jeans, Black Sooth
Bells and wings: Squeezed Lemon, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo
Hair: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
Face: Faber Castell pencils for skincolour





A close-up at the shoe-house, or Christmas Elves House as it is called :)
Colours: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Black Sooth
I have painted the snow on the house with a very light grey watercolor pencil from Faber Castell and I also used a glitter pencil at parts of the house.

As you can see I have created a snowfall with the marvelous Frantage Enamel Shabby White. The text is cut with a beautiful die from Roxstamps and means "Merry Christmas" in Swedish. I have chalked the edges of the lighter paper under the doily.




That's all I had to show for this time. Wishing you a lovely day!

Xoxo Madeleine
