Bentley’s Christmas Wish by Fliss Goodwin


Hi there, as this is my last post before the big day at the weekend, I have a card to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas featuring a rather cute Bentley in his Santa hat.







Ingredients:


DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics – Green Gold, Yellow Green Light, Metallic Gold
Glitter Card
Kraft Card Blank


Recipe:


My green paper actually came from my bits box and was made by swiping the green and gold paints over a thin sheet of A4 card with an old credit card, carrying on until I was happy with the effect.

I used the snowflake stencil with the Versamark ink to apply a pattern to my green and gold paper, heat embossing the snowflakes with white powder. I also added some swipes with the inkpad, which I embossed with the white powder. I then distressed the edges and added the paper to the card blank.

I stamped Bentley on stamping card with the black ink and coloured him with watercolour pencils, trimming the image to a rectangular panel. I stamped the Santa hat on a scrap of card, coloured with watercolour pencils and cut out leaving a fairly thick border, which I painted grey. The thicker border ensured that The hat would cover up Bentley’s top whiskers.

I next stamped the wish text directly on the image panel, and then added it to a mat of glitter card. I glued the panel on to the card blank to finish.


I hope you all have a really lovely Christmas and will see you next year when That’s Crafty! has some great things in store for you.

It’s also the start of our last challenge for the year over at That’s Crafty! Challenge Blog so don’t forget to check it out at 8am.
