Happy Moo Year

Happy New Year and lets start it with a fab new challenge.

It's the Critter Crazy challenge and all you have to do is make an animal of sort the main focus on your card.

For this card I've used a Sweet Poppy stencil called Isla the highland cow. I've pasted white stencil paste through the stencil and left it to dry completely. Then I've coloured over the top of the dry paste  with Copic pens. The panal at the bottom uses the Plaid backplate. That has been inked. The last bit of decoration round the sentiment is a piece of ribbon and some grass seed heads.

Merry Christmas

One last post for Christmas. I spent Christmas eve putting together this ribbon wreath.
I got the idea from Pinterest and just fancied having a go myself.

I put together about 8 different ribbons in shades of blue, white and a bit of silver. Cut into lengths of about 3 inches. They are folded into a loop and pinned to a polystyrene wreath with small pins.

I've added a sparkly snowflake decoration in the centre and put on some battery lights. It's really pretty all lite up.

Christmas Robin

One last Christmas card using a new die I've just treated myself to.
Had to get it from the US though as I couldn't find it in the UK but I really needed it.

The robin is a stamp from Sweet Poppy Stencils and it's just so cute. It's called Robin and Holly.

I've coloured it with polychromo pencils. I've then die cut the image and popped it back together on a red card background with some parts raised and some flat. Then just a Christmas Sentiment t complete.
