A Sleigh Full of Presents

Hi everyone, did you notice the Fashion Girl Christmas collection, shown on the Penny Black Blog Yesterday?  In addition to these wonderful wood stamps they also have a fashion girl on a cling mount; called 'Dashing Through The Snow' 40-159.   I decided to create a little Christmas Scene with her and this is the result.


I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then masked the parcels and repeat stamped the trees from 'Crystal Drops' 4268K, I then coloured the images with Copic markers and added Copic white to the centres of the snowflakes.  The sentiment was then stamped with Versafine Majestic Blue ink from the transparent set 'A Bright Tomorrow' 30-130 and the image cut out using a spellbinders die.  I then mounted onto 'Clear Skies' 10-003 mix and match cardstock.

Even though I have used cool colours for this card, I think she still looks cosy in her pink scarf and hat!

For an extra entry to my giveaway today (details for entry can be found here) leave a comment at the end of this post.  Thank you to everyone for all your wonderful encouraging comments, they really make my day.

Hugs Cathy

I love the little forest of trees in the background & all the snowflakes look super with the white accenting - very effective.
