* Vera Lane Studio: Christmas Cheer

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!


For my DT day at Vera Lane Studio I made a fun Christmas card.

I used one of the elves from Christmas Cheer and coloured her with Copic markers, adding highlights with a white Posca pen. I fussy cut her and two trees from the set, leaving a thin white border. I made the background with Distress Oxides  adding water droplets to bleach out some colour and also white paint splatters to replicate snow fall. Two die cut snow mounds made from white card. These were added to the bottom portion and the card and the elf and trees were popped on foam pads for some dimension. The sentiment is from the Calm and Bright set. The edges of the card were inked in black and matted onto dark blue card, then attached to a white card base.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
