Be good .....

... another of my scheduled posts, while I'm visiting Detroit.  At the time of writing the forecast for today is a temperature of 8°C (average 5°C) with a good chance of rain - but who knows what it's actually going to be like!!!

It's week two of the CR84FN43 challenge with our lovely colours of green, tan and brown.  I really like these rich colours.  The inspiration photos are courtesy of Beccarillo Photography.


This time I've made a Christmas card - still working towards that 150 cards that I need!  I started off with the big Santa image from Around Christmas time.  I stamped it, cut it out with my nesties and then coloured it.  I used Promarkers fro the hat, a Sakura stardust pen for the bell, glitter for the hat trim and flock for the beard!  It was such fun and I ended up covered in glitter and flock.  I cut some mats in brown, tan and dark green.  Before attaching to the card base I stamped some pine cones in Versamark, heat embossed with clear powder to give a tone-on-tone look.  I attached the coloured Santa image to a mat cut from the pearly tan card.  Finally I added a couple of pine cones that I'd stamped onto the brown card.


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Around Christmastime, Festive Foliage
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versamark
Spellbinders:  Pinking Circles Lg (S4-170) # 5, Standard Circles Lg (S4-114) #5
Promarkers:  Lush Green, Emerald
Accessories:  Glitter, Sakura Stardust Pen, Flock and card from stash

That's all for now.  Catch you soon.
