Tickled Pink Stamps DT - monthly challenge

Woohoo! It's time for another challenge at Tickled Pink Stamps challenge and we have another stunning sketch for you from Kellie! Loved this one hun, it's gorgeous! What is even better about this sketch aside from it's goregeousness is the fact you can use the tiniest little scraps for it!! I save any bit of paper bigger than a postage stamp LOL so I loved that I could use small offcuts from last year's Magnolia Christmas papers for my card! They've all been distressed with walnut stain distress ink and stickles.

I've coloured Unwrapped Tilda with copics and I've added some stickles to the dots on the wrapping paper, her socks and lace on her dress. I inked around the edges of the image mat with bundled sage distress ink.

Yippee!! I finally treat myself to some of Magnolia's Christmas sentiments LOL! I really wanted them last year but we can't have everything right? How patient was I waiting until the following September LOL! I've stamped it with Walnut stain distress ink.

I'm just loving my new snowflake dies too!! The large one I've cut in white card and then layered directly over it with an acetate one covered in diamond dust. The rest of the snowflakes on the card are acetate and diamond dust - I love doing them like this, they look like real snowflakes!! The lace is from my stash.

Hope you like it and I've inspiredyou to join us this week at Tickled Pink Challenge! Pop over and see the rest of the team's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x

Amazing ditressing with stickling on those scraps - glad I'm not the only one who saves all the tiny bits.
Those snowflakes look wonderfully icy too.
