Simple sketch

I have been playing all day today with a simple sketch -
 well, apart from going to my Indian embroidery class!

I found a couple of SDD images in my 'to be used' folder.

I basically covered two white square card blanks with a pretty paper, added a banner, an image and a sentiment. I used Promarkers to add some colour and some fine glitter. The image was a christmas bauble - I cut it down and covered the holly with a flower to make a Birthday Card!

The bauble remained intact for this one to become a Christmas card. This was supposed to be shades of blue for the Stamping with the Dragon Challenge
However in the photo, the red in the 12 Days of Christmas DP rather takes over despite the blues elsewhere. The strip under the sentiment is some of one of my 'food colouring and shaving foam' backgrounds.

I will also submit it to CHNC January extra

Happy Crafting!

  3. A lovely Christmas card, dragons are a favourite in this house. I'd never thought of using food colouring on the shaving foam, thanks for the tip. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CHNC aswell.

  5. Both cards look great with you, and so different despite having the same image. Another way to disguise the holly on a cocktail glass is to cut a small half circle of yellow card and put on a "slice of lemon". I love the marbled look of your blue paper.
