ABC Christmas ,,, B for Black and White + Coloured image

Oh wow !!! we had loads of fabulous entries for our 'A' Challenge !! It was a lovely surprise especially as many people were all Christmas carded out !! :-)

For the next fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge we have a fab theme for you ,, I LOVE this one and all the DT cards are fantastic !!

+ you may use colours on your image if you wish :-)

We are sponsored by Dustin Pike and he is offering a 1st and 2nd place prizes !! ALSO there is a fab free digi to use for our challenge too ( go and grab it from the Challenge blog )

Now ,,, because I was trying to get ahead with DT cards ( because I am going to the CHA next week !!!! YAY !!! ) I had made my card before Dustin gave the DT some fab images to use ,,,, IF I have time i will make another one tho !! :-)

I LOVE this super cute LOTV Igloo for Two image ,, and I did keep the colours to a minimum ,,,, :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink. The papers are Doodlebug and I used a Martha Stewart Icicle punch, some spotty organza ribbon and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. I used Star Dust Stickles around the edges and on the igloo and Diamond Dust for the icy ground. People have asked me what I use to glue this on ,, I have found Glossy Accents to be the best ,,, it doesn't fall off like it does with PVA glue. I have stitched around the edges ,,, my sewing machine is getting alot of use at the mo' ,, I have run out of DSST !!!! :-)

Here is a close up ,, I decoupaged the little Penguin with his sleigh :-)
