It is time for another challenge for Team B at Through The Craft Room Door
The Sponsor for this challenge is Hetty Clare Art and they have a prize for the lucky winner.
I have used the super cute Tree House Xmas digi and coloured it with Promarkers, a gold Sharpie and white gel pen. The sky has been coloured using a fabulous technique 'Colouring a Night Scene' from Beccy's Place. There is a really detailed step by step tutorial on her site for this and many other techniques and fancy folds and definitely worth checking out as an amazing resource.
I used this sketch 389 from Sketch Saturday for the layout. The base is a sheet of A4 card. The blue paper is a vellum from the Glittering Snowflakes 12"x12" pad at Crafter's Companion. It was an expensive purchase but I got a really good discount on it and used birthday pennies. I have a lot of Christmas paper but very little vellum so reasoned that it was a sensible purchase overall.
The sentiment is a Sizzix Sizzlits die which I have not used before. I have catalogued all my dies and embossing folders in a program called Evernote. This makes it super easy for me to find whatever tools I have in a specific think like snowflakes or butterflies. In the individual note I have added a photo of any project I have made using that tool. I am embarrassed to admit that over the years I have bought a lot of items that I have never before used so I am on a mission to try and make a concerted effort to use a more diverse range of items rather than reverting to some of my favourites.
I have used lots and lots of stickles glitter glue throughout adding red to the baubles, silver to the stars and snoflakes on the vellum. Stardust has been used liberally on the snow and to highlight the die cut.
Our challenges at Through the Craft Room Door are always Anything Goes so easy to enter. I hope you will join us.
It is also the 8th Annual Month of Holiday Cards challenge at Beccy's Place. This really helped me to kickstart my cardmaking last year when I left my job so I am really excited to take part again this year. I am entering this card as B with Blue, Brown & Baubles.
