Nontraditional Christmas Card using Tonic :D

 

A very nontraditional Christmas card! I know it's a little late to be posting a Christmas card, but I had the footage so thought I might as well put it up :D :D This was my Christmas card to my God-Daughter and it turned out completely different to the idea I had in my head lol :D I was going for a yellow and grey colour theme focusing on the elephant image, but as you can see it kind of evolved lol :D However I did have a lot of fun playing with the Nuvo Glitter Markers!! I'd not tried them before, and I have to say they're great! I love that you can scribble them onto your glass mat then pick up the colour with a water brush and they are packed full of glitter too :D I hope you liked this very nontraditional take on a Christmas card, you could easily change the sentiment and scrap the snowflakes to make this for another occasion too :D :D :D

Merry Christmas Spellbinders :D


I know it's a little late to be posting a Christmas card video, but I have a couple left, so wanted to put them up :D :D I'm back to my usual schedule of posting a Spellbinders video every Monday again now :D AND I'm going to be adding in an extra Spellbinders video each week too!! Not sure if it'll be another fixed day, but I'm attempting 8 Spellbloggers posts (with videos) a month :D :D I love these Christmas silhouette dies from Spellbinders, and I combined them with a couple of the Christmas word die sets along with a 'caught in crystal' background created with PVA glue and Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders :D I've done a couple of different 'caught in crystal' backgrounds recently just trying out the different mediums, and I think just using your basic PVA glue gives the best results :D Hope you liked the card! :D
