Clemantine Christmas, and some new pens

It is Friday so there is a new release and freebie today at Stamp Fairy.  Today's set is  Clemantine Christmas.  Here is a card I've made using one of the digis from the newly released set, and the matching freebie on the inside.  I've coloured Clemantine using my pencils, I quite like the candy cane (except after I coloured it red and green I realised it should really be red and white!).  I think I still need loads more practice with the pencils though.

My latest purchase, a set of 12 Sakura Stardust pens, as recommended by the lovely Samantha, were on my doormat when I got home tonight, so because I'd already coloured my image,  I therefore used the pens to highlight the edges of each layer of my card. You can just see the glimmer around the edges if you look closely.

I also used them to highlight Clemantine's hair bows, the snow and the bow on the pressie too as I couldn't seem to put the darn pens down once I started playing!  Kind of cute though, huh?  I decorated the inside using the freebie, a fancy snowflake font, and yes, some more stardust pen-work!  They're just to lovely to put down !!!


Please pop on over to Stamp Fairy to see the newly released digi images.

Here's a preview of the full set:
