We are showcasing PRIMA PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

I used various colours of Distress Inks to colour the background and then stencilled an underground map over the top. My daughter, Amy, will soon be setting off on her travels (sob) and I made this for her. ( Hope she doesn't read this !! ) :-)

I coloured her skin with Copic Markers and her dress and hat with Distress inks. I actually paper pieced her dress after colouring some scrap paper. I then shaped it with embossing tools and used dimensional adhesive to pop it up. This doesn't show up at all on the photo !!

Wild Rose Studio 'Love Bird Tree'

Have YOU made a start on your Christmas preparations yet ? If you would like to avoid the last minute panic then I would suggest that you join in with our Christmas Challenges. Come December you will be glad you did ;-) 

Please scroll down to see the winners of the last challenge.
The theme for the next 2 weeks is

 'I' Is For I Love You/For A Loved One

You can use either a sentiment with love' in it,or an image of a couple or a card for a specific person/family member any of these options will do :-)

For my card I thought I would use this gorgeous Wild Rose Studio 'Love Bird Tree' Craft Die . It isn't specifically a Christmas die, but I thought it would work for so many occasions. 

Although the tree looks black in the photos it is a very dark Midnight Green, lovely colour IRL. I decided to make the little birds Doves and love the stark white against the dark tree. I did colour them to look like little Robin's  originally, but these looked better.

This was so quick and easy to make and I will make a few more before I put the supplies away. I think I will make the banner in vellum though, I didn't have time to make another sample but I do think vellum would look better :-)

I finished the inside too, just to prove it is a Christmas card ;-) haha
