Crafts and Me Challenge DT - Ribbons

It is time for another challenge at the Crafts and Me challenge and this week our theme is ribbons. Now, I had this gorgeous fairy all coloured up ready for another of my seasons themed canvasses and then decided the colours were too harsh to blend in with the rest of them so I've made a Christmas card with her instead.

I've coloured Twilight with copics and added some stickles to her wings. The gorgeous snowflake embossing is a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I've used pearlescent cardstock for a soft shimmer.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts and is starting to become a favourite! I've used it on anniversary, wedding and Christmas cards - I think it could probably be used for any occasion. I have embossed it with a gold glitter embossing powder - it is incredibly sparkly in real life but when I took the photo it was dull and raining and I just couldn't get it to show. The gorgeous velvet ribbon is from my stash.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Crafts and Me Challenge. Thanks for looking! x
