Cute Card Thursday - In the Water!


Here is my card for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme is 'In the Water' this week. It doesn't have to be water, it can be ice or snow etc... Well, for my card I used this little beauty!! The new Eskimo Kisses download from Dinky Dots!! I was so happy when I saw this is my inbox last night, I had promised myself an early night as I'm back at work today after a week off, but I was up until 12.30 having a play! I coloured the image with Pro Markers (computer ink doesn't bleed at all with Pro Markers!!) I matted the image onto various papers, the chocolate snowflakes are download papers also from Dinky Dots. The bazzill bling white card was embossed with my new snowflakes embossing folder and I did a bit of hand stitching. I finally added some chipboard embellishments, craft wire, then I glittered the image and added ivory Flower Soft for the snow.
If you'd like to keep up with what's going on at Dinky Dots Crafts then check out the Dinky Dots blog, there will be exciting things happening there soon so watch this space!!

Love Becky xx

Wow Becky you work fast :D

I love what you have done with the image. The fur is very effective, and I really like the boldness that the markers create.
