Gerda Steiner Designs Monthly Challenge

Have you been good.

This is such a cute image this month, well every month they are cute but this one is sooo cute. I kept it simple with a round window showing a snowy scene and with the temp here in the 30'sc I wish I could have really had snow outside. Cut a frame for the window and coloured the sky with faded jeans and chipped sapphire distress inks and added two snowbanks. Used a white gel pen for the snowflakes. Santa was coloured with copics and adhered with mounting tape for dimension.

The Outlawz Monthly Progressive Challenge

Merry Christmas From Down Under

This is the a different snowman card as the weather here is hot, hot, hot. It just didn't seem right to make a card with snow when I was sitting in my room with the cooler on a steady 20c and outside it's 32c. We have had a run of hot days and with Christmas I just haven't had the time to post my card. I made a Sandman chilling on the beach and like the way it came together. The background is a Digi from Make it Crafty that I reversed and added a computer generated sentiment to. The sky is coloured with tumbled glass and salty ocean distress inks and the rest with copics. I fussy cut the sandman after I coloured him with copics and layered him on the background with
mounting tape. This was then adhered to a brown mat and then unto a kraft card. Added some glossy accents to the buttons and carrot.
