Chilli Days, Scarves and Gloves

Morning, Apart from a couple of dies and a piece of ribbon, this card is made from the items launched by Leonie on Hochanda. If you didn't see the shows, they will still be available on catch up via the Hochanda website, so please do take a look as the sparkle really shows better in real life, it's marvellous.

I stamped the snowman, the holly leaves and some berries onto my watercolour card. Then after masking them off with Pebeo Drawing Gum I added colour to my glass mat, spritzed with water and smeared my card across it. 

I held the top of the card up slightly to start with and then placed it on the lightest colours on the mat, I wanted it to have a snowy look. The colours I used were Cobalt from the Frosty Christmas set along with the Iris and Lavender from the Wrapped up set.

I used a Sue Wilson die to cut out, pacing and taping it in place. I chose this die as I wanted the background colours to show through the cut areas. I coloured the berries using the Berry and the holly using the Holly Leaf.

To create the background I took the same colours and wiped them diagonally over my card with a sponge.

When this was dry I took one of Leonie;s Strip sentiments and stamped around the 2 corners, The nice thing is doing it this way you never get any of the words upside down.

I took the same sentiment strip and shaped it on my block and stamped inside the die cut.

I secured the die cut onto my background using Cosmic Shimmer glue.

To finish off the card I added a silver satin edged organza ribbon. Then I backed the project onto blue Centura Pearl card from Crafters Companion, it was from the Darks collection.

Thank you so much for coming to see my step by step, I hope that you have enjoyed it and the finished card. I hope you will stop by again very soon. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
