Christmas Melody Sneekpeak at Crafts and Me

Morning Peeps,

I'm still here!  Sorry peeps I have been really busy behind the scenes doing design team cards for pre-releases and today I have a very special lady to introduce you to............. This is Melody and I have used her for the Crafts and Me Challenge which has been chosen by the dynamic Amy who has chosen another really easy theme for you guys at this time of year.........Snowflakes.

Christmas Melody is illustrated by Lemon Shortbread and will be available for sale next week with 10% off for one week for subscribed newsreaders and if you aren't one, then why not, it's free!  You can see the whole range HERE.  They are all fabulous.

I probably got a little carried away with my snow, lol.  I have used puff paint all around the edges and then heated with a heat gun to puff it up like snow.  I also added a little glitter to this to give it that glisten and shine. I have made the snowflakes using silver mirri card and punched another on accetate and added diamond dust.  These come out fab.

The sentiment is a freebie available from Bizzy Becs HERE

Materials Used:-

Medium Copics and Prisma Pencils
Papers used are Bearly Mine Designs
