Christmas in August With Stampin with the Dragon

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings the next challenge at 


the theme for this fortnight is

RED, GREEN, WHITE CHRISTMAS COLOURS. 
CREATE A CHRISTMAS CARD IN THESE COLOURS.

The sponsor for this challenge is our very own Janette owner and fabulous creator of everything in the Dragons Lair

So an extra chance to win some of her delicious goodies, do pop over and take a look.




I could not help myself and just had to choose this little fellow

He is called "Jiggy's Candy" and can be found here within the store

Here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece, but don't forget to hop over and check out the other inspiration by my fabulous design team buddies.

I created an acetate fronted card.  I hope you can see from this angle that the acetate front has been stamped with glue and glitter added.
The base layer is a gold mirror card, don't you just love the shine so perfect for Xmas.  I have used some of these papers
The one on the far right, you can buy these "Christmas Tree" papers here
I have added a tag and a little ribbon with bow using the holly MS edge punch to frame the acetate.

This is the image
I have masked the image to create the sky and grass around him.  He has been coloured in copics, with a white gel highlighter to add the extra highlights.  His toe nails have been coloured with a clear gel sakuro glitter pen.

Here is a close up of the glitter snowflakes on the acetate.

I really really really enjoyed colouring and creating this Christmas card.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 300 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 300 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too.
