A Red Christmas!


Uh-oh, the curse of photographing metallic strikes again! All those snowflake embellishments are actually the same bright red - I don't possess any black snowflakes!

The image on this die is a little elf from one of the Lili of the Valley three-circle sets. I coloured her with Promarkers than used the Promarker Blender to make dots all over the parcel, removing the ink to give a spotty effect. I've framed it with a die cut made with the Gummiapan sketchy circles die. The background papers are from my snippets and the border is a row of self adhesive foam snowflakes topped with pearls.

I am sharing this with

52 Christmas Card Throwdown - sketch
