#90 Kisses From Heaven
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - glitter & glitz
Sponsor & prize this week - Joanna Sheen - £10 gift voucher
Yes folks, it's time for my yearly battle with the bottles of Stickles. LOL. Will they or won' they cooperate & give me the required amount of glitter glue when squeezed - or will it blob or even refuse to come out at all! Well, it has to be said that on the whole, this week each bottle has played relatively nicely, which is a good job as I would hate to ruin my 'Mo card'. I do lurve Mo's images and this adorable 'Kai in the Snow' is amongst my favs.
I coloured Kai with Promarkers of course, though I also paper pieced his outfit to match in with the frosted tones of the dps - fabulous papers from Jak Heath. Even the papers I used for his winter suit were some of hers.
The dotty embossing at the back was done with a Cuttlebug folder, but as it was narrower than the area I wanted to cover I had to emboss as much as I could before carefully moving the paper over slightly so the dots matched up & embossing the remaining area. Not perfect of course, but wasn't too bad. Why aren't embossing folders 6"x6" or at least thereabouts? Having constructed my layers, I added the Marianne Creatables die cut snowflakes, (with centres using the punch outs from a Martha Stewart corner), duly Stickled of course - and dotted some matching gems on the dp. The sentiment on the front is from Raindrop Echo Designs. All this was mounted onto gorgeous shimming cardstock to add to the sparkly effect.
For the inside of the card I rescaled the papers and added my own sentiments, leaving just enough space to write the recipients' names too.
