Vera Lane Studio: Calm and Bright

I am still having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. For some reason, if you have comment moderation then I can comment. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!


It's Monday once more, so it's my turn to share my DT project for Vera Lane Studio. Today sees a new Christmas release called Calm and Bright. It's two beautiful Christmas Tree Girls and a sentiment. I love them!

I made a card, simply because you can never have too many Christmas cards.

As usual I used Copic markers to colour the images. I added white highlights and Crystal Stickles to the tree baubles and star and also to the girls eyelashes.
The background is a die cut panel over the top of a gelli print. I matted it onto green card which I edged in black ink before placing it onto a card base. I added the sentiment directly onto the background. The girls are popped on foam for some dimension and grounded by a strip of the gelli print. Some white glitter card stars were added as a final touch.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
