Lilac Christmas

Today I've been playing with the amazing new stamp from sweetpea stamps. I woke up today with a craving - there's no better word for it - to craft! I have a huge DT package with stamps that are hinting to me to be inked so who am I to refuse? Of course I needed to join some challenges, I went through my growing challenge list and here's what I came up with with the card:

fridaysketchers had a wonderful sketch this week that suited perfectly with this stamp. I really wanted the image to be the focalpoint and the sketch allowed that. I used my brand new spellbinder snowflakes instead of the circles.

stampin for the weekend had a lilac/silver colourscheme. I only coloured half of the image to give it a different look. The image speaks for itself and I like that you can see how it looks before and after colouring. As usual I used my promarkers and white twinkling H2O for the flakes and details.

By the cute and girly had "winter wonderland" as their theme.

Creatalicious had "something for Christmas including snowflakes and lots of sparkle/glitter."

Crafty calendar had "weather" as this month's theme. Thought the snowy weather behind the girl suited the theme wonderfully.

If you are inlove with these stamps as much as I am then you can purchase the newest release at a special price.
