Cardinal Ornament

Is everyone making Christmas cards yet.  I don't feel like i've really got going yet - only making an odd one here and there.

So I grabbed the chance to make one with this beautiful image from the Stamping Boutique - it's called Cardinal Ornament.  They're sponsoring us at The Outlawz Sketch challenge for October.  We also have a very special guest designer this month - Edwina.

Here the image I coloured using ProMarkers.  It's then been cut out using two Spellbinders dies.  Distressed with Shaded Lilac distress ink from Tim Holtz.  I've then added lashings of DecoArt glitter over the top to give it lots of sparkle.

Here's the sketch we have for you this week.

And here's what I've done with mine.  The papers are from Lili of the Valley with the white snow flake one also being treated to some distress ink.

There's some white ric-rac ribbon across the bottom and top. 

Finishing touches are the while pearlised self adhesive gems and a red wooden Merry Christmas sentiment I got in Hobby Craft.

We'd love to see you over at Outlawz
