Annabelles Gifts

Hi folks
well there's only 68 more sleeps to Christmas so best get some cards ready to send. This months project are to include contemporary colours and so I have used a lot of purple and silver as I have be told by my university student daughter that they are the 'in' colours of the moment!!

Here's a card designed using contemporary colours and the 'Annabelle with Gifts' Stamp from wild Rose Studio . The image was a dream to stamp and is clear and crisp. I used a selection of pro marker pens to colour this in and decorated round the image with glittered snowflakes and flowers hope you like it.

you will need

'Annabelle with Gifts' stamp
Spellbinders leafy square dies
Marianne designs snow flake die
white card
Tim Holts 'dusty concord distressing ink
Stampendous silver halo glitter
sentiment stamp
paper and silk flowers
purple ribbon
Green, red and purple card
blank base card

Step one
Stamp and colour your image , I used a blender pen with pro markers but Spectrum Noirs or Copics will do a fantastic job of this too. I used 'Almond' for the face and 'lilac, amethyst, and berry red for the hat and dress, Cool grey 1, and ice grey 4 for the fur and lemon, mint green berry red for the presents .

Step 2
when your image is coloured, cut out some purple card and mount and cut out some leafy dies in purple and green card using the largest die (for the purple die-cut I had to cut this in 2 diagonal) and put on your base card

step 3
Decorate the corners, I cut out some Marianne designs snow flake dies and covered them in Stampendous silver halo glitter and added a little purple flower and added some silk flowers in the bottom right corner
step 4
Stamp out your sentiment and cut out the smaller of the and Spellbinders leafy square dies then softy dust the die cut while it is still in the die with Tim Holts 'dusty concord distressing ink and add to the card

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges
