The two samples I have made (so far) are for the Christmas Frenzy element of the challenge.
I decided to take a deep breath and create two Christmas cards using the Alice Palace designs. I will hold my hands up and declare with complete honesty that I don’t think either cards look as though I made them but in a strange way it was fun to be bold! Although I am much more comfortable with winter white and lace for my Christmas cards!The second card.Initially I only planned on pattern only in the form of the fabrics but after I had applied paint and Gesso I realised that some other pattern was required so I randomly stamped the Crafty Individuals star with Distress Ink Fired Brick.
This might sound rather strange but I wanted an appearance as though looking through ice or a frost window. After I stamped the stars I applied the owl and text (which I stamped onto tissue paper) with a generous application of Gel Medium instead of my usual more cautious approach. This photograph gives you an idea of the sparkle around the edges of the card and I also used a Sakura stardust pen to highlight some of the letters and also the wings.So there we have it, my two small samples for the challenge.
