Christmas glitter!

So, the last challenge of the year has just started at Glitter n Sparkle..
"Christmas with glitter!"

I got this delightful image from BUGABOO.
Scarves hats and antlers have been glittered,
 with my micro fine coloured glitters,
which i sprinkle after applying my glue pen to the little areas i want glittering.
It's a great way to only cover smaller areas and
to get it very precise!
I coloured the cats with my promarkers.
I added a freebie sentiment and also
the frostyville border which I diecut on my bigshot.
The backing paper is from a dovecrafts set of papers that I found
on offer last year, but hadn't got round to using yet.
The little stars are the leftover cutouts from the frostyville border.

Anything goes!

It's the old favourite challenge this week, at Glitter n Sparkle blog..
"anything goes!"

I used Polkadoodles "burger" image as I can think
of a few men that this would be a great card for!

I coloured the image in, with my promarkers, 
fussy cut around it and 3d foamed it to give some depth from the card,
The sentiment was printed onto the card
and I popped some backing paper behind, a bit like a napkin. 

This was a really fun image to colour!

Back to the Glitter n Sparkle blog...

So, I have got enough unpacked now to join back with the 
Glitter n Sparkle blog challenge, 
which is "traditional christmas colours" this week.

I used the image "butterfly wings" from Crafts and Me. 
It was lovely to colour with my promarkers.
I cut the edge with my frostyville border and added some golden glitter. 
I bought new holly die in Hobbycraft yesterday,
so used that in the corners. 
A simple stamped sentiment finished the card.

Candy cane heart

At Patties Creations this month, the new challenge is:
"anything goes - christmas or winter."
I used Patties image "candy cane heart."

I fussy-cut the image and coloured with my promarkers.
I hand-drew the little branch, as I knew that's what I wanted -
but I don't have a branch stamp or die.

I embossed the edge of the white and backed it all
onto the candycane paper - again, I embossed and inked that around the edges too.
I added a sentiment done on the pc
and used some glitter-dust on the whites of the candy canes and the
tops of the branches.
