Creative Artiste - Traditional Christmas Colours

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Well we have got to Friday and the weekend is nearly here. We are planning on visiting both sets of parents one set needs a new computer and the other needs a new television.

Firstly, today sees the start of a new challenge on the Creative Artiste Challenge blog and the theme is traditional colours. White for snow is traditional isn't it?

My image came from Lacy Sunshine and she is called Frozen Luna Moonflower Blooming Beauty. Well Frozen was in the name and I could only think of snow and ice when I saw this image. 

If you click on the logo above you will be taken to the store. There are some beautiful images on offer.

She was coloured with Promarkers. I cut a frame for the image. 

I embossed the background with a snowflake embossing folder. Then I cut the Sue Wilson Snowflake border four times and used it to surround the card. I added some extra snow flakes to the design and to the centre of each snowflake I added a PVA pearl. 

Now I didn't just leave it there I was challenged to make some thing other than a card so I decided to make one of my gift bags with sweets at the bottom. 

Again I coloured the image with Promarkers and this time I made a blue frame. 

I edged the image with the Snowflake border die this time I trimmed it to fit and I added extra snow flakes to the corners. Over the top of the sweets I put a piece of blue card edged with silver. The sweets are meant to be snowballs they are from a high end chocolate shop so they should be delicious. 

So two projects from me and I think the image works well with both.

Have a great day. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
