Crafty Calendar December Challenge - A Little Gift from Lili of the Valley Christmas Card

Good morning all.   Hope you are all safe and well,   I'm now fully recovered from Covid-19, so have started to catch up on some Christmas crafting.  Unlike previous years I think I am nearly ready for Christmas, I now have the majority of cards done, the presents are nearly wrapped, so hopefully I will have time to fit in some other Christmas crafting projects.

It's the first Saturday in December so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar and the theme this month is

For my card I have used:
I masked the image so that I could ink blend the background with Distress Oxides in Villainous Purple, Prize Ribbon and Broken China
I added stars using gold paste and the Spellbinders All the Stars stencil.
The image was then coloured with copics.
I stamped some snowflakes on the base card using the three distress oxide colours I used for the background....I just couldn't find a DP that I liked to go with the image.
I added glossy accents and rock candy glitter to the hats and snowy ground

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Sizzix Winston the Snowman Christmas Card

Good morning all.  Happy 1st December, I am celebrating today as this signifies the end of my 10 day isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.  I got away with it quite lightly which is something to be thankful for.

I have a Christmas card to share today.

For this card I have used:

Sizzix Winston Colorize Die Set by Tim Holtz
The background was created using Distress ink and the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit Stencil.
When I had inked through the stencil I gave it a quick spritz with water so the ink would move a little bit and then dried it.
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips Slimline Christmas Holly Jolly Set

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and I'll see you soon x
