Belli Challenge #108 - Snow and RI CASE Challenge - Lynette


Greetings!  Today I am posting another dual challenge card! This week's Belli challenge is Snow and this week's Repeat Impressions Case challenge is to case a card from fellow design team member Lynette Neus.  The details for playing along on the Belli challenge can be found on today's post and for the Repeat Impressions challenge, you can find Lynette's card and the challenge details at The House That Stamps Built.

For my card, I used the Holiday Lamp Post (2002-J) image, combined with the Let It Snow (2006-H) sentiment. The lamp post was colored with Copic markers and then I added some Martha Stewart Snow Glitter and some Polar White Flower Soft.  The patterned papers are from BasicGrey's Wassail 6x6 pad and the ribbon is from their Mellow collection.

For the sentiment panel I created the 'icicles' by adding a strip of white card stock that I had cut using my Martha Stewart grass border punch, which I adhered upside down, dabbed with Glossy Accents and then covered with the Snow Glitter.  Both panels were airbrushed and I added a couple of rhinestone snowflakes to cover the brad holes on my sentiment tag.


Hope you'll play along on both challenges!  Thanks for stopping by!
