Sweet Stampin' - Wrap Up Warm

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Anyhoo it's that time of the week again - it's my turn to share my Sweet StampinDesign Team card with you. Our theme this week is quite topical in the UK we definitely need to start wrapping up. The theme is 'Wrap up Warm' (Hat, scarf, coats etc) - remember you MUST include a stamped element on your card/project.

This is my card which I painted with my brand new Spectrum Noir Aqua pens - I wasn't sure if I was going to like them, but I love them. I'm impressed with the pigment and the range of vibrant colours in the packs. I added loads of glitter and crystal glitter snow to the finished picture but unfortunately the camera isn't picking it up very well. I also added my new Christmassy watermark - created by moi :)
Here's What I Did
I matted a 7" x 7" white card base with festive patterned paper. Next I printed the sweet digital image directly onto some watercolour card and die cut into a square. The image was coloured with Aqua marker pens - these pens are new to me and although the background looks pale it has been painted with pale pink and blue colours (next time I think I will make it a little darker for the camera).

The finished image was matted and layered onto co-ordinating card and attached to the card base. I added crystal glitter and snow to the trees, hat and ground. To finish off I used a gold pen on the wreath and added a die cut poinsettia in the top left corner.
