Crafty Cardmakers challenge 8 - clear as day


Time for another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this time we'd like to see you use something clear (I've used acetate) on your projects. Have a look at the rest of the lovely DT work for some great ideas, and Vix has given some great ideas on there too - hope you'll all join in :o)

I've used the Elzybells 'polar bear' teddy stamp, I really do love this cute little bear. He's coloured in with promarkers, with a chalked sky background, some sakura clear glitter pen on the little falling snowflakes and some polar white flowersoft for snow. My plan was to make some snowflakes from acetate, but I soon realised that none of my dies or punches would go through the stuff - eek!! Change of plan, so I used a sizzix bigz flower die to cut some flowers, then covered them in glamour dust and added some button centres. I've used Papermania 'naughty & nice Christmas' paper, a nellie snellen circle die to cut out the image and then added a strip of pink & blue fibres to finish.


For such a simple card it fits quite a few challenges :o) Here are the ones that I'm entering:

Lisa I love the adorable teddy and the flowers work really well. I need to crack open my Flowersoft, it sits there unused and unloved........

Those new templates are really ornate, I may have to invest in some of those......
