PAB Snow Cottage

As you know, I am beyond lucky to be on the Graph'it Markers design team.  Premium Art Brands are the UK distributors for these markers, and they had a show on Create & Craft TV on 18th August.  In this show they launched 4 gorgeous new winter-themed clear stamp sets and Nikky demonstrated the markers along with these stamps in the show.  The GI DT were asked to make samples using the stamps and Graph'it Markers, so I thought I'd share some of my samples with you this week!

Today's card uses the cottage, lights and tree stamps from the awesome PAB Snow Cottage clear stamp set. I stamped the tree and cottage onto white card, then I stamped the lights separately onto the cottage so that they hung from the roof! I coloured both images with my GIs (what else? lol1) then cut them out.

I wanted to create a simple winter scene, so after layering a square of pale blue snowflake paper from the Polkadoodles Angelberry Christmas CD onto dark brown card, I added some randomly cut white, textured card to resemble snowdrifts.  I stuck the cottage directly onto the background, but popped up the tree using 3D foam pads to provide some dimension.  A bit of glitter and it was done!
