PTW Katharina's sketch #8: 'let it snow'

PTW this week is another fab sketch by Katharina, so it only seemed right that I'd use another Charlotte stamp to make a DT card for her :)
Sorry if it seems a bit weird seeing Christmas cards in August but I'm actually quite enjoying making them earlier as I can spend more time on them rather than my usual last minute panic. This is Carol singing Charlotte and I really love colouring her with dark hair - think it matches her gorgeous big eyes.
  • Images: 'Carol singing Charlotte' from Whiff of Joy stamps. The holly flourish and the let it snow circle are from an Inkadinkado 'doodles holiday' clear set. They have some fab new ones for autumn and xmas which I couldn't resist ;)
  • Colouring: Promarkers and white gel pen (Inkssentials)
  • Paper:DCWV christmas stack from last year (Forgot how much I liked this stack) & glitter card stack
  • Others: scallop circle nesties, fiskars 'threading water' border punch again! (can you tell I like mine?!), ribbon, snow brad & gems from stash (wasn't quite the right shade of red so went over it with matching promarker pen)

Don't forget you've got till Aug 11th to place your Charlotte & Charlie pre-orders over at Whiff of Joy AND qualify for FREE shipping. For those that have already ordered them, not long to wait before you can play with these babies! If you want to see more of these cuties made up try the other Whiff of Joy DT's (links on my list to the right) not everyone has them yet but I know Rach & Kimmie have - you won't be dissapointed!

Before you go and leave me, I've been asked to do a promarker colouring tutorial so I took some step by step photos whilst I was making this card and will try and write something up just need some time to edit the photos etc.
Have a good Friday.
