Crafty Gals Corner- Christmas in July



Hello Crafty Friends,

Can you believe we are about half way to Christmas?  This year is flying by. So, let's celebrate with a challenge at Crafty Gals Corner titled "Christmas in July".  I am always up for Christmas cards and projects.  Snowmen are my favorite at Christmas time so I was excited that I was able to play with the "Snowman and Birdie Friends" from Conie Fong.

Conie Fong is a self-taught artist residing in California, USA with her husband, daughter, pet hamster and fishes.  In her early childhood years, she was inspired by every kind of art and crafts.  She loved watching demonstrations by artists on the streets and at festivals and spent most of her free time perusing arts and crafts books in the library, drawing, crafting and experimenting with her art supplies at home.  Conie first started sharing her art with the world by selling ACEO reprints of her ACEO paintings of fairies, mermaids, and kitty art on Ebay in 2010.  She was a full time account manager for a University before becoming a full time mom and part time artist.  She currently enjoys spending time with her family traveling, exploring the outdoors, and designing beautiful, cute, and magical art for craft and coloring lovers.


Conie is an amazing artist and I had fun working with this image.  I colored the image with my Copics.

Here is a closer look at the image alone:

The sentiment was stamped from a retired set from Kindred Stamps- Magical Season. I used paper from Echo Park and a piece of vellum in a scallop shape for the background.  To finish the card I added some silver glitter enamal does.
