Christmas Morning Tilda - White on White

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Today, I am posting a card using a technique that I never use and is truly a challenge for me. It is White on White (for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge).
Here is my card...

 I have not used this sweetie for a while. She is Christmas Morning Tilda from Magnolia. I colored her dress with E40s and B90s.

I used Y11 to give just a bit of a glow from the candle on her dress, hair and face.

With the white on white challenge, I wanted my elements to be distinguished from one another, so I used a variety of shades of white and added a hint of distress ink around the edges for definition. 

 The deer are Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight dies cut with glitter paper. 

The snowflakes in the background are Doohickeys from Magnolia.
I am entering this card in the following challenges...

Wild Orchid Challenge - Snowflakes

Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes!

Thanks for stopping by today! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Saturated Canary - Let It Snow

Today, I have another Christmas card to share.

This card uses a gorgeous new Saturated Canary image. The image was included in the Digital Crafting Essentials Magazine. The magazine comes with two CDs with various digital elements. The background papers were part of the digital package too. I just printed them out on cardstock. They work beatifully. 

 I used my Copics chart to pick the colors that most closely matched my papers. I dotted the background with C1, C3 and C5, B91, B0000 and V01. I used a Stampin' Up! background stamp to stamp the snowflakes around my images in pearly ink and added Liquid Pearls.

I added one small flower spray with some purple berries.

 I used the Snowflake Doohickey times 2 with a blue rhinestone.
 I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Today, another Christmas card.

 I have used Tilda With Little Rudolph. Isn't she just a doll?


I will be entering this card in the following challenges...

Sadly, this is the last CLP challenge. I have loved their beautiful sketches and will miss this challenge tremendously.

Saturated Canary Sketch

After an extended and much needed break from the blog/craft world, I have finally found my way back to my craft room. I am so glad you have found me here. 
For my first project in quite a while, I have a card for the Saturated Canary Sketch Challenge. 
 This adorable image is called The King from Saturated Canary. I colored the image with Copics.


The star was cut from chipboard. I added glue and gold Mica Fragments and the blank areas filled in with gold glitter. 


Here is the sketch I followed for the challenge...
I will also be entering this in Papertake Weekly

Thanks so much for stopping by today! It is great to be back in the craft room!
