First Christmas Card for 2016

I wiped my iPad of all my favourite challenge blogs by mistake and have had a lovely week reconstructing them thanks to the gals at Paper Playful listing challenge blogs on a daily basis.  So I have discovered new ones to 'case'.  Got my Promarkers out to colour up this really cute image only 3 shades used: Berry Red, Pear Green and Shale.


It's a nearly 6x6 inch card base, covered with two sheets of DP (designer papers) and embellished with die cuts by Joanna Sheen and Spellbinders Labels 31.  I took my time colouring in those cute woolly-hatted owls and look what I did....covered two of them up with the tag! I normally stamp on smooth 160g paper for my laser printer but this time I had scraps of cream 'hammered' card that I used instead - you can barely see the hammered effect to the bottom right of the stamped image.

I am entering the following challenges:

Card Recipe

  • Base card from the Factory Craft Shop in Ballymena, Northern Ireland
  • Ancient Designer Papers from my stash - I think one is from DCWV

  • Dec 25th die also by Joanna Sheen
