MONOCHROME CHRISTMAS


For this card I have used a Magnolia Santa, coloured with ProMarkers.  My papers are all from the First Edition Christmas Promise pack.  Noel is Fab Scraps chipboard, and the sleigh is a KaiserCraft wooden embellishment.  I have painted both with Prima Metallique Wax (Old Silver).



I have used 2 Bo Bunny doily dies, and ScrapBerry pearl swirls, which I cut apart to spread them around, plus a few odd pearls here and there.  There is also a piece of cheesecloth and a strip of Simplicity bobble trim, both of which I sprayed with Bo Bunny Sugar Glimmer Spray, to give them a greyish look, instead of pure white.  

The silver leaves and most of the flowers are Prima.  I've also used Petaloo flowers, and Couture Creations 'bouquets'.  Looking at the photographs now, some of the flowers look a bit brown next to the darker little flowers, but they're actually all shades of grey.  In ProMarker terms, think Ice Greys compared to Warm Greys 😉





Thanks so much for popping by to have a look!
