Sugar Bowl Challenge 5

The Sugar Bowl Challenge 5 has a Christmas theme.... I never thought I'd be making Christmas cards in March!!! Never mind one down ..... but many more to go!!!!

I only have one sugar nellie stamped image that is Christmas themed and I have coloured her with distress inks. The papers are from dovecraft and I have inked all the edges with faded jeans distress ink.

I covered the snowflakes with something that looks like very large crystals of sugar, not sure what it is called but I will try to find out. It gives them a nice sparkle in real life, but unfortunately it doesn't show on the photo. I put the snowflakes over prima hydrangers and fixed them in place with silver brads.

Card/Paper: White, navy and metallic silver card, dovecraft - winter wonderland
Stamp - Sugar nellie
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, weathered wood, tattered rose, fired brick, peeled paint, broken china and a silver gel pen.
Embellishments: Primas, snowflakes, brads, jewels
Tools: Water brush, snowflake punch, corner rounder punch
Thanks for looking x
