Krafty Snoesjes and Owl

Our new challenge at Marianne Design Divas is to incorporate some kraft card into your creation, and of course to use a minimum of 3 MD products.  Our sponsors for this challenge are Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Marianne Design - pop over to the blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the DT have made.

I went quite krafty for my creation and stamped Snoesjes and the Owl onto a die cut krafty piece Blankina had kindly sent me. The die cut is from set CR1254 and isn't one I have .. .. yet!  I've coloured with Polychromos pencils for a change, as they seem to work well on kraft card, and of course I've added lots of glitter for the snow sparkling in the moonlight.

Here is my card:

A dark kraft base then lighter kraft on top before adding a piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Time pack. I've distressed and inked the edges of the layers. I've also cut several of my embellishment pieces from kraft card but changed the colour slightly by using a chalk ink over the die cut before adding the glitter.  You can see on the big tree, and the tall pinecones and poinsettia leaves where I just inked the edges. I used Niagara Mist on the tree, and Oasis Green on the pinecones and poinsettia leaves.  I've used Sahara Sand to ink the edges of the die cut greeting banner.  The poinsettia flower is one I made earlier from scrunched and inked handmade papers, I just added the little gem to the centre and a touch of frosting.
