Holly Cottage

A card using my new stamp design for Kadoodle, 'Holly Cottage'. There are six cottages in this series which will be on sale from this weekend and I'll be at the Craft Barn for a demo on Saturday and Sunday which will be fun. This cottage also has the Christmas Tree and Door Wreath to go with it. They're coloured with prismacolor pencils and sansodor and the tree and wreath are decoupaged, sprinkled with glamour dust, stickles and liquid pearls for the tree ornaments. There's a good spattering of glamour dust all over the snow and roof too, it's lovely and sparkly IRL. The cottage is matted on red card and blue bazzil and lifted up on dimension tape over the Bo Bunny background paper. I finished it off with a wide red satin ribbon, dots of liquid pearls and doodled dots in metallic silver. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
