Wild Rose Studio Festive Frolics and Blog Hop reminder ,,,

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend of Happy Crafting !! :-)

At the moment we have a Challenge going on over on the Wild Rose Studio Blog with LOADS of prizes on offer. You only have until Monday morning , 9 am UK time, to join in, so you'd better put it at the top of your 'To Do' list if you haven't joined in already !! :-)

Dulcie, the owner and designer of the Wild Rose Studio has released some gorgeous new Christmas stamps which you can see HERE

You can see my original WRS Blog Hop post HERE if you like :-)



I made this card using the new , and oh so cute, Pickle with Present stamp. I coloured with Copics and used the Ratty Rag ( I think thats what it's called) technique to make him look furry. To do this you add a few drops of blender solution onto a bit of old towel and dab it over the image. You will need to colour the furry bits first and then colour the rest of the image in afterwards, otherwise everything will look mottled :-) I then added Polar White Flower soft to his pom pom and hat trim and inked the edges with Colorbox Chalk ink. The papers are from Pink Petticoat and I embossed a piece of plain card with a star embossing folder.I added a spotty organza ribbon from The Ribbon Girl,added a Stacking Stars star in the middle of the bow and finished with oodles of Star Dust Stickles and a few Hero Arts gems.



Thanks for looking :-) I love reading all your comments so please leave me one ,, AND ,,, PLEASE join in with the challenge and hop !! xx
