I made it on the Make It Crafty design team!

(Please scroll down for my Lil' Inker Designs blog hop post!)


Yes, very exciting news for me!  When the uber cool Zoe invited me to join her talented Make It Crafty Inspiration design team it took me all of a split second to accept it!  So this is my very first make for Make It Crafty and I thought I'd plunge in and make a Christmas card.  So here it is using sweet newbie Fairy Tinsel...



Ain't she sweet?!  I wanted to showcase this cutie so I only added a little bit of pattern (Happy Holidays by Zoe Pearn) but created some interest with an embossed background (using the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder).  I also used the new Christmas Borders chipboard to frame her - I simply trimmed one of the borders and then inked it up with a matching pigment ink.  And do you like the berries?!  I used a Viva Decor Pearl pen to give it 3D shape and then sprinkled on lots of Doodlebug Cupcake glitter - I'm really pleased with the way the berries turned out, they literally pop off the card!

And of course where would our sweet Fairy Tinsel be without her tinsel?  I shaded the tinsel with my Copic C1 and C3 and then used Glamour Dust on top.  I love Glamour Dust as it's so light the colouring still shows through!  Here's a closer look so you can see what I mean...


Copics:
Holly leaves and trousers - BG10, BG15
Coat - RV00, RV52, RV55, RV25
Hair - E31, E33, E35, E37

Okay, that's it from me - I hope you have enjoyed my very first Make It Crafty DT post!
