Another card for CHNC challenge 137: picture inspiration


This is another card for my CHNC challenge 137, with this picture inspiration:


I made the background paper by inking one  of the 6 x 6 Papermania urban stamps 'home for Christmas - homespun'. As this is a large stamp I inked it with fired brick distress ink and placed the piece of card on top of the stamp, pressing down well. I then inked part of the stamp with bundled sage distress ink and die cut a circle using the cuttlebug, using this to create a spotlight, making use of the colours in the inspiration picture. The felt reindeer seemed an appropriate addition as there are deer in the picture.

CHNC challenge 137: picture inspiration


For today's CHNC challenge 137 I've given this picture as inspiration - you can use the colours, the shape, any of the items in the picture - interpret in the way you wish.


For my first card I've concentrated on the colours, also the trees, using a stamp supplied by Flonz craft, one of the sponsors of CHNC challenge 137. I inked with versafine onyx black and dotted the trees with a quickie glue pen on to which I put some Art Institute green glitter. Papers are from my Christmas offcuts box and the ribbled snowflakes are from Hobbycraft.
