For A Child - Winter Wonderland Card Challenge for 25th of March 2016

We have a new challenge at Winter Wonderland. The theme chosen by Pat K is 'For A Child'. We would like to see a Christmas project that any child would like.

Please remember Christmas projects only.
We are sponsored this week by 'All Dressed Up' Images who are offering 2 digis for the winner.

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

I used a cute image from All Dressed Up called Christmas Post, which is available from the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop.
Here is my card:

I coloured the image with the following Copics Pens:

  • Cat: N3, N5, N7, N9, RV63, G14, YG09, G17
  • Cat's envelope: BG02
  • Dog: E08, E19, E29, YG03, G14, YG09, G17, R32, R35, R37
  • Dog's envelope: G00
  • Post box: R32, R35, R37, 100, Y28, black Wink of Stella (writing)
  • Snowflakes: silver Wink of Stella
  • Background: B000, B00, B02 (edge of sentiment)

The sentiment is from one of the La La Land Craft stamps.
The image is printed on X-Press It Card and then adhered to a piece of green AC Cardstock - Christmas that I in my stash and then both are adhered to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.

There is inspiration from the Snowflakes DT on the Winter Wonderland blog.  We always appreciate a visit so if you click the name you can hop over and leave them a comment and also find out if they have combined their challenge with any others, which could give you some ideas.

Thanks for looking!
