CHNC Christmas #496

This week our challenge is Anything Goes with the option "use a snowflake or 2 or more"

Bit of recycling this week,  we went to a wedding last year, where the bride and groom are really into skiing, snowboarding etc.  They have spent a lot of time in snowfields and there wedding invitations came out with this huge snowflake.  Had to save it for a future project.

Layered onto Stampin up paper, I even had a matching polka dot envelope.  Silver sticker for the sentiment and some silver kindy glitter dotted around the card.

A Girl and her Horse

The image on my card is from Hettie Clare, and is called Pony Plait.  It is the freebie this month over the The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge. 

If you haven't checked out the challenge, please do so, great images each month.

I absolutely love this image, brings back memories of our daughter when she was young and her overweight horse, Barney.   The horse ended up being locked in a stable at night to stop him eating his way through his paddock, he always seemed to be overweight.  Then, one day we had to go out earlier than usual and here he was standing at the fence being fed by the local school children on their way to school.  He certainly was a favourite, have no idea how many kids gave him their lunch each day. 

The image has been coloured with copic pens, some glossy accents for her shiny boots.  A rubber stamped sentiment completes the card.

Angies Digital Stamp Challenge, 7 June, 2020

The theme at Angie's Challenge this month is Anything Goes, the twist this month is "Summertime"  Living int he southern hemisphere summer is a distant memory, so I have created a mixed media page with a little poem to remind me it will come in another 6 months.

The Angie's Digital image I have used is called "Daisy Mae playing in water".  Daisy Mae has been colour with copic pens, her dress and bloomers have been paper pieced.  Once fussy cut, she has been layered into the page.

I have used colouring pencils for the sky, and Paper Artsy Fresco chalk paint for the sand and water .   For the texture I have used the backing of paper napkins and glue, some seed beads into the sand and then rubbed off to give some extra texture.

To complete the page I wrote a poem, adding some glitter. the sun, beach houses and rain drops (think water drops) from Flourish with a Bling (sadly no longer in business)
