An extra post from me today to show you a recent make for a Winter Birthday using an fabulous image from All Dressed Up.
Here's what I used and the how's:
Image: Christmas Girl by All Dressed Up
Colours and paper: I have used Copic's to colour her and the purple combo is BV0000, V20, V22, V25; coloured on 300gsm super smooth card from That Craft Place
Backing paper: honestly...its a cheap pad I picked up from The Works! I just loved the muted tones.
Die cuts: Snowflakes and fence are cut files on my sillouette; Stars are a Joy Crafts Star stack set again from That Craft Place
Extras: Cosmic shimmer glue, sticky jewels and Glamour Dust (my fav glitter).
Insert: same papers from American Crafts and then...
TOP TIP alert... the waste from a Spellbinders Adorning Squares die cut that I used on another make, can be used as a fabulous frame on your inserts! I hand wrote the sentiment but it is inspired by Zoe from Make It Crafty and I have some of these chipboard words winging its way to me :D
Here's the close ups:
The image was given to me as a part of The Outlawz Challenge Blog's Progressive Challenge; if you've not heard of it yet, check it out...as a part of the challenge the image is given to you FREE, you make a card and enter it in that months challenge, then you get the next months image free and so on. If you don't enter a make, you can rejoin at any time by buying that months image and then the next will be free as usual. It's a great way to try out a lot of different sponsors images and try different styles :D
