Annabelle with Gifts ,,,,, :-)

Hi all,,,,, I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend :-)

Did you know it is only 100 days till Christmas !! YES it is !! so if you haven’t made a start on your cards yet then maybe you should be thinking about it :-)

I have just made this using one of the latest releases from the Wild Rose Studio ,,,, Annabelle with Gifts ,,, isn’t she lovely :-)



I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge, coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with stormy Sky DI, I then used a Viva Decor Ice White pearl pen( LOVE these pens !!) and stardust stickles for the snow. I used Hero Arts Glitter on her hat and coat trim and also on the punched snowflakes. The papers are also from the WRS, from an Annabelle’s Christmas pack. The sentiment is from a Christmas Circles set and I added some ric rac ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

For the background card for layering, I started with plain white card and inked with Iced Spruce DI, while it was still wet I quickly brushed over with Sour Apple Perfect Pearls ,,, lovely and shimmer IRL Smile



Thanks for looking :-) I love reading your comments so please leave me one :-)
