Lovely hAnglars only - plus a couple more

Lovely Hanglar only's challenge this time is 'Seasons' and I, like many others no doubt, is seeing Christmas hurtling towards us at break neck speed - So Winter/Christmas it is.


I coloured my little hAnglar girl with Copics, stamped round the edge of the image with  snowflake stamps and heat embossed them using clear embossing power, I then inked over with Faded Jeans distress ink. The snowflakes are coated in Diamond Dust, the two leaves cut with a Woodware punch and the two lower flowers with a Nellie Snellon cut and emboss punch. The white panel beneath the image is embossed with the cuttlebug Snowdots folder, why - when I covered it up - don't ask!!! I've used a MS deep punch for the scallops at the bottom and finished with a ribbon, gems and Christmas tag from my stash. If the image looks rather large it's because my card is rather small as I'm waiting for some larger ones to arrive - if you're reading this  at Deutsch post - get a move on!!!

This also fits the following challenges
Anything Goes - Christmas has come early
Fussy & Fancy a fab sketch by Mindy
Die Cut Dreams - A recipe - 4 flowers, gems, emboss & use a punch

Love the softness with this blue & white & that stamped embossing round the edge is delightful. The Swiss Dots actually show up rather well in the photo & I think they actually make quite a difference to the whole feel of the design - just adding that snowy kind of texture. The sizing gives the image quite a bit of oomph! Especially the way you've framed it.
