Hey guys, today it's time for my second post over at Deep Ocean Challenge. This time the theme is 'Around the World' so theres loads of scope for individual interperatations & the design team has some FAB cards for inspiration, be sure to head over & check them out. Then don't forget to enter your wordly creations - we'd love to see what you make!
Due to the time of year (it's freezing & me not having got to grips with my festive makes yet this year, I thought I'd do a Christmas North Pole scene & this pretty little LOTV fairy stamp was just the ticket!
The papers are from last years Magnolia collection, I also made a heart tag die using a Magnolia Doo Hickey die & 2 spiral flowers using a Marriane Designs die.
Here's a closer look...
The image has been coloured with Distress Inks on Watercolour Papers & highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust. I've used my Viva Declor Pearl Pen in Cream on the snowdrops & added Polar White Flower Soft to the snow on the ground, around the edges & elsewhere on the card.
