sexy Kenny K Christmas card

Hi there everyone who is going bananas on making Christmas cards?  I know i am flat out i have loads to upload for you guys to have a looksie at! I will be glad when i can say goodbye to Christmas cards for a while lol

I am lucky to have built up a wonderful stash of digi's and chose a Kenny K image  and this one is called Mistletoe.  She is a rather sexy lady ready to deliver Christmas presents to her lovely other half i think!

I used a white card blank and covered it with a holly covered gold foil card and then used a black card and then the digi using a Nestabilities Grand Labels

I then added a purple ribbon and bow and also on top of the ribbon i added a cute ribbon i found made out of delicate snowflakes and Christmas trees. i then added some blue and white snowflakes around the image and added a snowflake sentiment

I covered the inside of the card with the same gold holly sprig card and cream paper with a sentiment added in gold reading Christmas Joy and happiness throughout the new year.  And also a few snowflakes as well!

The last little thing i added was a gold metal snowflake and attached a angel i had made from jewllery findings and beads....I think she is cute!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The image i was given the chance to play with is steampunk profile by Alipeeps Art and is available at the Stitchy Bear Outlet

She is a lovely lady with long flowing hair and i had much fun colouring her and making her into a card.

I foun some lovely foiled A4 card that i folded in halft to give me an A5 card with that gorgeous gold and black band down the side on the right.  I ten added some black spiderweb fabric that i had in a swap box last year and then layered the image onto copper coloured adorable scorable card and then onto a embossed gold card.  I then finished her off by adding a few cogs to the card as that was the only steampunk embellishment i had at the date this is my second steam punk card and i quite like steampunk...

I used the following copic colours for the image

Skin E 00, 01, 02 and R 20 for her cheeks
Hair E 04, 07, 09
Lips R 36, 38

And finally a gold pen and some Martha Stewart glitter glue for the cogs in her hair! Fairly simple the hardest thing i found was getting her hair right!

Originally we were to make a Christmas card using 1 digi, 2 papers and 3 embellishments.   But a few of the DT went a bit bananas so i did both! but the other one i did will be in another post...that way i can enter more challenges lol.  So i was lucky to have Santa and his sleigh (separate digi's but i just had to buy these to as they belong together!)  Kenny K  has some lovely images up for grabs for the loved ones this year from the more traditional to the sexy stuff just for your other half...So pop on over to  them and pick up some gorgeous digi's to suit everyone.

So onto my creation this week!

I started with a red A4 card and bone folded it in half to make an A5 card blank which i then embossed with a snowflakes.  I then used K & Co Christmas Cheer paper and a handmade paper in cream with silver snowflakes on it.

I then attached a red ribbon and bow as well as adding a fairy and a sentiment called Christmas Cheer from the K & Co  Life's little occasions- timeless traditions.

I used Tim Holtz stormy sky and broken china and distressed my image after colouring it to make it look like a dark sky and after colouring the sleigh and Santa i used fine white glitter and a MS glitter glue that looks like snow for all the glittery bits on the card.

I used Copics for Santa and the sleigh.

Santa Coat/trousers R 35, 37, 39, 46
Beards C 00, 0, 01
Fur trim E 40, 42

One Stitch At A Time #192

Hi there and welcome to another wonderful challenge at

and the theme this week is USE A DIGI

This week we are sponsored by the lovely Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet 
with a complete set of images that we used in challenge #190
 and the runner up gets a $3 prize.
But to win main prize you have to use a digi available from the site .

This week i was given a lovely image called Snow Deer Scene by Ike's Art and available at the store.  It comprises of quite a few elements one being the complete scene and the rest are components of the winter trees and snow as well as the fawn and deer being separate if you so wished.  I decided to work with the complete scene which i printed twice to make my project.  This onw came out darker than my first attempt as i had used tracing paper and the night time colours of purple and blue had shown through lovely .  But seeing as i tried to chop two tips of my fingers off and got it covered in blood i restarted and had to use a thickish parchment paper and don't quite get the effect i had before...sadly.

Although this has gone off to a new home as a friend was quite taken with it!

I had started with a canvas that i had made different shades of really dark purples and Dark blues to mimic a dark winters evening. I had then printed the parchment and coloured the deet and bushes and elements of the trees.

I then overlayed a sheet of Acrylic A4 which i then made snow for the trees and added colours for the bush and berries and highlights of snow for the deer.

I used Copics in E 14,17.19 for the body of the deer and her fawn and G 28 and 29 for the bush.
I then used Martha Stewart glitter glues for the red berried and the white on the snow, trees and a little bit of loose glitter on the ground and the back of the deer.

Originally the tracing paper really showed the colour of the evening sky through the two layers but thanks to the thick parchment it is rather muted which was a loss as it created such a lovely effect of twilight on the scene.  I like the Martha Stewart Glitter glue that i ordered some more in a three pack in arctic winter colours as i feel i will use a lot more of this on my Christmas cards this year!

Happily my fingers are healing well and i kept the tips!
