Penny Black Challenge

Well here is yet another christmas card for me to add to my pile... seems like that's all I've made for the last month or so.... if it keeps going at this rate I'll be well organised which will make a change for me..
Obviously the challenge this week over at Penny Black is christmas so off I set to look out the old PB stamps.
The papers I used are Paper Cellar & they were edged with a gold calligraphy pen and if you look closely at the red holly on the paper you will see I created an embossed effect by outlining the leaves with a Red Sakura Glaze Pen.
Now the image was done in super quick time... stamped with Staz On then coloured using
Red, Green & Grey Sakura Glaze Pens... direct from pen application so really quick... only part that I water coloured was the shadow... then used a Quickie Glue Pen and once it turned clear I sprinkled some glitter on. Edged again with a gold calligraphy pen then layered onto some black card which had also been edged. Attached to the base card using silicone.
To finish off I used a quickie glue pen to attach the gems to the snowflakes & a little silicone to mount the snowflakes themselves.
Hope you likey... not bad for a quick make eh...
Happy crafting
