LOTV - Challenge 79 - Sketch by Lena

Good Evening Everyone,

Well this weeks challenge from LOTV was a sketch to follow and I enjoyed doing it so much that I have made 2 cards using it.  I must admit though that they are both Christmas cards as I cannot seem to stop myself from making them at the moment.  I am sure this will soon pass!

Here are the cards I came up with: -

Card One

I must admit I do quite like making Black & White Christmas cards as they look quite classy even if I do say so myself.

The LOTV image I have used is "Igloo for Two" and can be found here.  It has been coloured in with my promarkers and I have used Rymans 200g card which is lovely to use.

I have used DCWV papers on the card some glittered and some not but I do think they work quite well with this layout.  The punch is one of the new Martha Stewart snowflake border punches and it is fabulous to use as I have used it on 270g card.

The black corners have been added with the off cuts from the base card.  I did want some fancy corners but they were a little to big as I only just remembered that this card needed 2 corner embellishments.

I tried to make this card as flat as possible to save on postage (that is if anyone wants to buy this one), mind you it still weighs a fair bit with all the layers.

Card Two

Instead of making another black & White card I went for more rich and vibrant colours which I think works quite well with this image.

This image is called "Sledging with Daddy" and can be found here if anyone would like to purchase it.  Once again I have coloured it in with promarkers and as you can see it hardly needs any colouring in.

I have matted the main image onto mirror card and the papers once again are from DCWV from a paper pack I have had for a few years..

The corner is one of the New Marianne corners and works quite well with these colours.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for any comments you may like to leave.

Happy Crafting
