Joy & Love

Herb from the brandnew Whiff of Joy Winter and Christmas Collection designed by the fabulous Elisabeth Bell is the star of today's card....haha
I got inspired by the heavenly shabby chic creations of
Anna Wight. Her colourations are so stunning and her illustrations so much fun :)
So I thought by myself: "Can you also do it?" - Create a less is more card with this elegant, distressed touch??. Well, judge for yourself...lol
Herb aus der brandneuen Whiff of Joy Winter und Weihnachtskollektion designed von Elisabeth Bell ist der Star meiner heutigen Karte. Ich wurde dazu von den wundervollen Werken von Anna Wight inspiriert. Ihre Colorationen sind ein Traum und ihre Illustrationen einfach nur zum Totlachen. Also habe ich bei mir gedacht:"Kannst du das auch?" - Eine "weniger ist mehr" Karte zu kreieren, die so elegant aber auch distressed ist?...Naja, beurteilt das für euch selbst...lol

I created my cardbase (13,5 x 13,5 cm) out of kraft cardstock from Stampin' Up. I created the embossed frame with my square Nestabilities and stamped Herb with black StazOn ink and the help of my stamp positioner directly on the cardstock. I coloured his body with my white water soluble pen and the rest with my Spica glitter pens. He stands on "stickles-snow" and the background is coloured with Twinkling H2O "cinnamon brown". There are icecrystals on the snowflake, I did some faux stitching around the borders and distressed them with my brown ink pad.
The sentiment is from the "Winter Wishes Set" from Whiff of Joy Stamps.

Ich habe meine Kartenbasis (13,5x13,5 cm) aus Kraft cardstock von Stampin' Up hergestellt. Den geprägten Rahmen habe ich mit meinen rechteckigen Nestabilities gemacht und Herb mit schwarzer StazOn Tinte und der Hilfe meines Stempelpositionieres direkt auf den Cardstock gestempelt. Seinen Körper habe ich mit meinem weissen Aquarellstift coloriert, den Rest von ihm mit Spica Glitzer Stiften. Er steht auf einem Berg von "Stickles-Schnee" und der Hintergrund ist mit Twinkling H2O (cinnamon brown) gemalt. Eiskristalle von Crea Direkt sind auf der Schneeflocke, ich habe "falsches Nähen" am Rand angewandt und zum Schluss alle Ecken mit meinem braunen Stempelkissen gewischt.
Der text ist von dem "Winter Wishes Set" von Whiff of Joy Stamps.

My card qualifies for Papertake's Weekly challenge with the theme "snow".
