Hello everyone and welcome to Saturday. With only two Saturdays left before Christmas and feeling rather pleased with myself that I haven't got to do any more shopping for presents. I'm going to have a day of watching Christmas movies whilst wrapping up the presents. Just Love this time of year..
Its the start of a new challenge over on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and the theme is
"All Creatures Great and Small Including Aliens"
I again have made a Side stepper card this time its for my Daughters Christmas card as she loves her animals.
Poor Edwin does get left out a lot of my card making but I couldn't resit inking this little fella up for this card. He is from the Autumn stamp kit from Magnolia and couldn't wait to get a bit of colour in his cute little cheeks.. lol
Papermania papers, Magnolia Stamps, Molly Bloom stamps, Whimsy Sentiment stamps, Lilly of the Valley circle sentiment stamps, Wild Orchid Flowers, Magnolia Doohickey dies - Tree and Hearts border, Copics, Martha Stewart hearts border punch, crimper distress inks, puffy pen, Glamour dust, Copics, Ribbon and rusty bell.
The main image is an older stamp from Magnolia but I just love this image as I so reminds me of my daughter when she was younger. (Gone are the days when she would let me plat her hair and put ribbons in) The circle sentiment is one of the new ones from LOTV I think they are called "sentiments for her" and are rather handy as they are many different sentiments that can be used for different occasions and for different ladies in your lives.
Here's a close up of Edwin, Don't you just love his hat! The sweetie house in the background is from the 2011 collection from Molly Bloom. I used a puffy pen on the trees to give the image a bit more depth and added glimmer dust whilst it was wet to add a bit of Christmas sparkle. The white tree is a Doohickey die cut which I have painted with picket fence crackle paint.
I used white acrylic paint on the grass to create the effect of snow on the grass and then went and covered it up.. lol The snail was given some metal antennae and coloured the colour of Rudolph's nose. The little Robins are also a stamp from Molly Bloom that I have attached to some acetate so they look like they are flying. The postage sentiment is from Whimsy and I used the matching die to cut it out.
