Back to The Daisies

Hi Everyone

Well I am finally back among the Daisies & I have to say it is soooo good to be back :-) This week we have a fab challenge for you. The theme this week is Christopher Columbus Day so we want to see all your cards with a Boat, Shore or Relaxing Image..... I decided I would do a Xmas Card & chose the Relaxing part of the theme.

When I saw this image I just couldn't wait to use him. Isn't he cool? I coloured him in using Promarkers, then used my Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze in white to give the edge of the ice some shine. Not sure if the camera picked it up properly. I used a Snowflake embossed background & then cut out some Snowflakes from a glitter peel off sheet. Lastly I added soe Stickles to the hat & Igloo.
Here is a close up of the image.

As I embossed directly onto the card the inside automatically had the Snowflake pattern debossed. I then created a writing area. Onto this I added a laser cut edging & some more Stickles. x Clare x

The little eskimo looks far too happy to be sat on the ice, he must have some wonderfully warm snow suit on.

Lovely card and I love all the twinkle.

I'm new on the Daisy Doodles team so waving hello to you and looking forward to getting to know you.

Love Mandy xxx
