... 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.
