Have A Hoppy Christmas

Awww you can't see my new technique on this picture so I have done another photo, but the image is blurred because I went too close so you can see the sparkle. A few photo lessons wouldn't go a miss.

This technique I saw here on Dena's blog, and in real life it looks fabulous. You colour your image and then cover the whole thing in versamark. Then cover with irredescent embossing powder (I used holographic but it's the same effect). And it gives your whole image this gorgeous sparkle, saves on stickles etc too. And the great thing is, it won't shed like glitter.

This card and bookmark are for my Daughter's teacher, she loves frogs. I used a Penny Black image from the Holly Day Critters set I got from Sir Stampalot here. On the card I drew the snow and snowballs, stamped the frogs three times and gave them all different coloured santa hats.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Stamp Something - Christmas Colour Combo
2. The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge - Christmas Something Or An-otter (Bookmark & Card)
3. ABC Christmas - Y is for Yuletide (Red & Green)
4. Fussy And Fancy Friday - week 25 - Anything But A Card (I'm entering the Bookmark)

Thank you for coming by my blog today, hope your all keeping warm
Happy crafting
