That's Torn Christmas In July!!
This one is for several challenges, with the first inspiration coming from Bah! Humbug! and one of it's DT, Ann. The theme for this week's Bah! Humbug! is torn paper and the first thought that popped into my mind was a tutorial that Ann did for an acetate card that I've been wanting to try and it just seemed perfect for this theme so I decided to create this little scene of the snow people family. Click on the link to take you straight to the tutorial. It's a very simple card really - I won't go into the assembly of it because that's all in Ann's great tutorial. I created the background with alcohol inks in stonewash and denim and added white dots using an inktense pen for the 'snow'. I tore some white pearlescent paper for the snow and added glitter to the edges. The snowmen are a digi stamp from Crafty Ann's that I printed out in three sizes and coloured with promakers and a sakura stardust pen then added a touch of stickles star dust. The sentiment is from the Christmas Tickets sheet. All I added to finish it off was some white satin ribbon. I really enjoyed making this so thank you Ann!
The challenges I'm entering my card into are:
