The Nova designer markers were perfect not just to colour my stamped images but also to create the 'stained glass' effect on this card design.

I stamped the Christmas Bear image using a stazon ink onto acetate, then coloured the back using Nova Designer pens, these alcohol pens were easy to use and blend and I loved the textured effect I was able to achieve on the acetate.

The finished design was trimmed down and I added adhesive pearls to frame it before mounting behind a circular aperture i cut into the front of a 6x6 square white card base.  I decorated the inside with a snowflake pattern paper from the Paper Addicts Cosy Christmas 12x12 paper pad.

I cut a matching card front from white card, die cutting a slightly larger circle into the front before stamping a present and mittens in black memento ink.  the nova markers were easy to use to colour the stamped images, vibrant and juicy pens, I used the small nib side for colouring, blending and adding texture effects.

Pom pom trim is one of my fav embellishments, so i adhered some behind the aperture to frame the centre before adding the stanped panel to the card front.

Some simple stamped sentiments in black ink to finish the design for Cozy Winter Wishes

Lovely card. The pearls as a border look really good. I got some Nova watercolour markers for my birthday a couple of days ago, I am looking forward to using them, and now need to learn to stamp !



Aw thank you, I wanted to soften the look of the border as I had stamped in jet black Stazon on, so the pearls worked well to keep it looking snowy. I have some of the watercolour pens too, I like to work with both depending on what i'm colouring or effects i want to achieve :) Ohh Happy Birthday! It was my birthday on the 12th so we can share a birthday week! :D



Love this card especially the stained glass effect and the snowball pom poms XXX



thank you, it;s a very 'me' card especially with the pom-poms :D xx
