Christmas Dove Easel Card


I get so much pleasure out of making these Easel Cards. They are so easy and so much fun!
This is my 3rd Easel Card and I used my new 12 x 12 MME Signature Christmas Glitter Pad.
These papers are the most stunning and I was relunctant to cut them up. May even treat myself to another pad, just for stroking!!!

The image is a digi download available HERE. I saw the DT cards on a challenge blog and fell in love with the Dove, think he can be very versitile.

I have coloured the Dove with Promarkers and used Glossy Accents on his nose and drops on the leaves. Then 3d'd his wing which has been edged with a chesnut inpad and painted with Shimmerz and a touch of Crystal Stickles. also used the brown inkpad on all the papers for a more destressed feel. All the other bits are from my stash.

I have followed this weeks Friday sketcher and used this weeks theme of Spots and Stripes at Papertake Weekly. Crafty Catz has a theme of Buttons or Brads and Simon Says Challenge. There theme is All That Sparkles (wings and flowers) which I am also entering this into, My Time to Craft and finally Bee Crafty which is distressing!

Would love to thank all those who have participated in my Candy so Far and the great response I have had from bloggers who have offered to send Daniel a Birthday Card!!!
Thanks for looking and have a lovely day
