Penny Black Saturday Challenge

  Well hello there! It's the first Saturday of the month, so we have a new challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. 

This month our theme is 'ANYTHING GOES' or the twist 'CHRISTMAS'.

I made another Snowy card , but this time I made a Mixed Media background 

I began by making a light wash to the background. When dry I stamped and embossed 3 snowflakes with Pearl Embossing Powder. Then I stamped 3 more snowflakes with Karin Markers, spritzed liberally with water. The polka dots on the hat were added with white Gouache.  I stamped, coloured with co-ordinating colours and fussy-cut Snowy. To finish I stamped the sentiment and Snowy again on the white strip and added shading. 
Stamps: Penny Black Snowy, Snowfall

 The prize for this challenge is as always, provided by our generous sponsor

If you'd like to be considered for a guest designer spot for a future challenge, please add 'GDT' after your name on the link-up...and remember to check back to see if you've been chosen!

 You can see more inspiration from our talented Guest Designer, Bonnie and the rest of the DT at our blog. I hope you have the opportunity to join in our challenge.
