CCSR Limited Supplies Challenge #4

Well I was up until 2am this morning making this card because I realised the CCSR technique challenge #3 was away to run out and I was stitching away quite the thing. Got the card finished and then remembered I had switched off the laptop and couldn't be bothered booting it up at that time of day. So luckily it fits the new limited supplies challenge which is to Design or Create your own patterned papers either with stamps, doodling, inking, etc so you're limited to no commercial patterned papers. What a stroke of luck eh?

 

Image: Snowflake from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers and sakura stardust - larger snowflakes are hand stitched with silver thread (see close-up) and I used metallic silver sakura pen to do the faux stitching round the edge of the image. The image was cut out with classic oval nesties and matted onto CCSR polka dot paper, cut using the scallop oval nesties in the cuttlebug

Lilac core'dinations card was stamped with CCSR doodles flowers using clear papermania ink pad then heat embossed with papermania silver embossing powder. (I pressed quite firmly with the stamps to make them look more like snowflakes and less like flowers)

The charm was taken from a papermania elements topper, threaded onto silver thread and I added a few tiny beads - then attached to the card with a silver papermania brad
