Holly Cherub - Sheepski Designs, alcohol marker

July is here and hot in the northern hemisphere. Let's bring in some of the winter cool with Christmas/Winter in July! This month's challenge for Sheepski Design blog is Winter/Christmas. My card features the Holly Angel with golden filigree and sentiment.

Putting It Together

It's starting to heat up here in British Columbia, Canada. Happy Canada Day!

I used Nuvo alcohol markers to colour the image on Neenah 110lb cardstock.

After colouring, I added some embellishment with glittery Aqua Shimmer, Nuvo drops and a white gel pen for the eyes.

To work out a layout, I cut one filigree corner to dry fit with the image that I trimmed with a circle die. I used a dark green velvety suede for the background.

I cut the other corners and a sentiment to do another dry fit.

I used a gold glitter marker around the outside edge of the circle.

And then adhered it all to a white square cardbase.

Inside, I used a stencil to add a soft green pattern to the background and added an embossed gold sentiment.

Come join us in the Sheepski Designs blog challenge! The challenge theme for July is Winter or Christmas.
