Completely Christmas challenge 57


This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 57: anything goes with a twist ... black and white. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge with your black and white entries.

I used Sassy Studios 'snow queen portrait' (Sassy Studios are sponsoring the challenge), a png image that I superimposed on to a piece of Bugaboo Stamps digital paper, layering a strip of another Bugaboo paper, changing them back black and white, adding the text and then printing. I then wrapped a piece of Crafty ribbons snowflake grosgrain ribbon around it and layered on to a black card blank, added a couple of white organza 'flowers' (more like pom-poms really - not sure what you'd call them - lol!).  I lightly coloured the snow queen's hair using a soft colouring pencil.(a water colour pencil, but I didn't add water!).


This is also for:

12 months of Christmas 4
Jingle belles: fa la la la la - inspired by song: Snow Queen (Elton John)
Catch the bug: anything goes (used Bugaboo digi papers)
Order of the opus gluei 205: black and one other colour
3 girl jam April: anything goes (with ribbon)
Frilly and funkie: put a ribbon on it
Winter wonderland: let it snow
Through the purple haze 84: anything goes
