My next card has been made for The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge No. 4 - Sketch from Donna. Once again this is a new stamp I have just received from High Hopes called "Holly the Winter Fairy". I thought she was so cute, and I could not resist buying her. She has been coloured in with my WC Brushes, and cut, and layered on pearlescent green cardstock. I had to improvise a little in getting scallops at the bottom, so I used my scalloped Rectangle Nesty, and then cut three of the sides straight, and left the fourth side with the scallops to fit in with the Sketch. For a little added interest, I have glittered the fur, and holly berries too! The main stripey backing paper has been printed from a download off a CD that came with the Crafts Beautiful magazine a couple of years ago. The plaid backing paper is from HOTP.
I have then stamped a sentiment, and layered it on red card, and finished the card off for the Sketch, with a piece of ribbon down the side of the card.
Thanks for stopping by, and please come back and visit again. Happy Crafting X
