Wot no paper!!

Morning crafty bloggers. Hope you are well  and that the weather is being kind.  

Before I get to today's creation I would just like to share this...


...a real bluebell carpet. I think they were probably past their best but you get the idea!! 

Anyway, back to Christmas!! 



This is the first inking of PB's Sweet Snowman, the first of many I suspect!! He was coloured with Promarkers to match the.....wait for it...STAMPED background. That's right NO papers!! I used my Inkydoodles set to create the gingham check with rhubarb stalk and lady bug momento inks. I added faux stitching to add to the home spun look too. The background was embossed and then rubbed over with gilding wax for some sheen. Card candi to finish it off.


He was made with these challenges in mind...

Holly Jolly - Christmas Embossing
Completely Christmas #9 - Anything Goes
Christmas Card Challenge #22 - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - No sentiment
Sweet Stampin' - No papers

Thanks for your company today and see you soon xx
