A Touch Of Kraft at A Creative Romance

Good morning everyone, I got back from a lovely 2 weeks away on Wednesday, and I have just read through all of the comments left while I was away, thank you all so much, I am truly touched by everyones kind words, and the time taken to visit my blog.

It's time for a new challenge over at A Creative Romance, our theme this time is A Touch Of Kraft, we want to see some Kraft on your creation.

We are sponsored this time by Sandy over at Live and Love Crafts, Sandy has changed the look of the site, it's even prettier, if it's possible, and until 31st August there is 10% off, just enter the code that's on the site at the checkout.

I took my pencils and images with me, and I got some colouring done, I did quite a few Christmas images sat under the airconditioning as it was over 30 degrees outside in the Greek sun.....

I have coloured one of the new Christmas images from Lili Of The Valley, My Snowman Friend, with Inktense pencils, and went for a sepia look, and I really, really like the effect.

The papers are from Maja Design, and I have distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz tool, and then used some snowtex, love this stuff.

Isn't this one of the cutest Snowmen images around?

I have used screw brads to fasten the snowflakes on to the card. What embellies I've used are from the Ribbon Girl, I love the faux hessian, especially for boys cards. Along the bottom I have pulled one of the threads to get it ruffled, I have fastened two jingle bells on with some natural button twine.

Thanks for looking, 


Becky xx
