BABY'S FIRST CHRISTMAS...

Well it's the beginning of a new week again....and it being Monday means it's time for a new challenge over at POLLYCRAFT.....this week the theme's been picked by Jane and she would like a "WHITE CHRISTMAS"....all white card(colour only the image)or snowy/winter scenes....
To be honest i'm alittle sick of making Christmas cards now so went for a hanging ornament....i love this image from Pollycraft "Willie" so decided to go with "Baby's first Christmas",the image i've coloured using Promarkers and Prisma's...i printed the image twice so that i could 3d the top and hat which i did using glue gel.
For the ornament i used a Spellbinders "Snowflake frame" die...cut this out 3 times and mounted each layer using 3d dimensional foam pads,the image as been cut using the inner die of the frame and also raised using the foam pads.
While the frames were still in the die i went over the top with a Versamark ink pad and then brushed over with a silver mica powder...this then catches just the embossed parts...giving it a lovely sheen but not captured very good in the photo.
I've added alittle glamour dust to the stars and around the base of the image...again not showing too good in photo :0(.
I made the tassel using embroidery thread...i had every colour tassel except white
Ribbon,button and self adhesive pearls from stash.

The above photo shows the reverse side to which i added a small verse which i found on the internet....the font i used is "Chocolate Box".again the verse panel's been raised and some self adhesive pearls added.

I would like to thank all who joined us last week on the challenge and hope you can all join in this time too....this challenge will run for 4 weeks so plenty of time....our next challenge will be 10 January....we are also looking for some GD so if you're interested when you enter your card/project just add GD to your name in the inlinkz.
Almost forgot there's a fabby prize up for grabs too :0)...
Well that's about it for today.....
Take care
