Ragged Martha

Well hello again crafty peeps I hope you are well. I am back with another Christmas card for you today. This one is one I have made for Phil’s Nan and Grandad, (the lady that loves a verse lol bless her)

So the card is of course 8x8” I am sorry but I have no idea where the papers came from they are in my massive digital Christmas paper folder with no name attached sorry(I  just know they were freebies from a good while ago)
I distressed the edges then inked with various DI  and then splattered with diluted paint and starlights (loooooove this paints)
The image is called Ragged Martha I just love her she has the most adorable face you just want to pinch those cheeks hahaha, I coloured her with a mix of Pablo, Polychromo and luminance pencils then masked off and created the background with various DI.

To embellish I again made a fussy bow using hessian threads and added a large button the centre.  The finally went over the whole card with snow tex to add texture and while still wet added some glitter for added sparkle

Now as I said and say every time I make a card for this lady (Nan May) I have to make sure I out a good verse in as she always says a good verse make a card.
I made the insert in my usual way using papers from the front and  adding the image to the left side and the verse on the right.
And there you have it, Hope you like it and I will see you soon with yet more Christmas cards (well it is the season hehee)

Challenges  anything cute and Christmas (I dare you to say she's not cute!!!)
