Fox in the Snow ...

Good Morning!
They say things happen in three's and that's certainly true considering today's creation! 
This is my third card in a row featuring an image that I haven't coloured myself. This image is a little different however as it's actually from a shop bought Christmas card! 
I bought a cushion with this exact design on last year and as soon as I saw the design as a set of Christmas cards from the RSPB I knew I had to snap them up. I die cut the image from the original card and used it as a topper on one of mine!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything But A Card!

Good Afternoon!
It's time for a new monthly challenge over at PBSC and this month the theme is 
'Anything But A Card!'
Usually this theme fills most Cardmakers with dread but I think it's the perfect opportunity to make some gift tags, which is exactly what I've done today.

I have used a Christmas stamp that was released last year and I first stamped it in white ink before layering it slightly off with the same design in a black ink, creating a sort of shadow effect! I also opted for some non - traditional Christmas colours for a change.




INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black 'Regalia' Stamp
Penny Black Sentiment Stamp from 'Believe' T-Set
Lily White Sprinkles by Doodlebug
Silver Shimmer Dome Stickers by Papermania
Bark Stars from Live & Love Crafts
Cheesecloth, Seam Binding Ribbon & Flowers from The Ribbon Girl
Frantage Embossing Powder, Ranger Glossy Accents & Twinklets


INKS USED -
Archival Ink - Jet Black
Distress Ink - Stormy Sky & Walnut Stain
Stampin' Up White Ink Pad
Distress Stains - Stormy Sky, Weathered Wood & Faded Jeans
Distress Spray - Iced Spruce & Broken China

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely weekend!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
