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...
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!
