Winter Wonderland - GoGo Create December
The beautiful Wintery feel of the kit inspired me to dig out an old photo of Lulu at the German Christmas Market in Hyde Park. It’s there most years and well worth a visit with traditional German market stalls , food and drink – especially egg nog ! and even an outdoor skating rink and fairground rides.
I love the wooden alpha in the kit and wanted to really showcase it on this design by using different techniques ….some letters have been covered in patterned paper and the others have been coloured with Promarkers , a nice coat of Glossy accents really brings them to life.
The other gorgeous element I have focused on is the bespoke stamp , a vintage postcard design that’s not just restricted to winter designs ! I stamped and embossed the design in clear embossing powder and then swooshed over the whole image with distress ink for a lovely vintage look.
Creating this design has me all excited to visit a Christmas Market again this year !
