Morning - there is a new challenge starting today at The Paper Shelter which will run over the christmas holidays. I have used an image called Christmas Decorations but it is an Anything Goes Challenge.
I have used paper and a greeting from October Afternoon called Holiday style as the retro images seemed to match the image. I die cut the image and the gold mat using a spellbinders nestibilities die which also has a retro feel. I used some pine twine from Tim Holtz and attached to it a large wooden bauble that I have embellished myself using gems and a gold pen to add details. Finally I added the little blue bow.
I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin- Antique white, blush, soft peach, coral & spice.
Top - Pink Mittens, Baby Pink, Cocktail pink & Carmine.
Hair - Buttercup, Mustard, Sleigh Bells & Raw Sienna.
Skirt - Red, Poppy, Ruby, Cardinal Red & Burgundy.
Tree - Holly, Forest Green, Pine & Pear Green.
I'd love to see loads of enter in the challenge and hope you get some time to craft during the holidays.
Have a lovely few days and I'll be back on Christmas day with some more inspiration.
