OSAAT challenge 38 - Christmas 2 Glitz and Glitter

Happy Sunday everyone

This week at OSAAT it is Christmas Week again and I have been given two of my friend Stitchy's images to play with and I have combined them into one card. This is another that has been completed digitally and then over-coloured with promarkers to give it some depth and shading. I have added some DI, stickles, spray and shine and glossy accents to finish it off as I really didn't feel it needed anything else.

The papers are from The Shabby Princess (you know my favourite sets of freebie's on line) and the sentiment is from Dewdrop (another freebie download).

The baubles look flat on the main photo, but here are two taken at an angle to show you the shine of the glossy accents and the glitz and glitter on the wings (spray and shine -  I actually brushed it on) and stickles on the hat. You might need to enlarge the pics if you want to see it more closely.

The Sponsors this week are    and will give the winner 5 digis of their choice.  Di says -

"I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion to share my cards with like-minded people. I was a stamper and loved finding images, but some I could not find so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!"

There are some lovely designs and some freebies s well.

Please go over to the OSAAT challenge blog and take a look at the wonderful creations the DT have made.

Enjoy your Sunday - I have the busiest of busy 4 weeks coming up now, so you really won't see much of me for a month. I shall be popping in to see what my blogging buddies are up to but any comments will be the briefest. I apologise for that in advance but I will be back giving you all more time in December.

Take care for now.    luv {brenda} xox
