Completely Christmas challenge 2


The week has gone by very quickly and it's already time for the second 'anything goes' challenge on Completely Christmas. It was great to see so many people joining in for the first challenge. Please click on the link and see what the rest of the team have made and join in with the challenge - anything goes, as long as it's Christmas (and, of course, you can enter anything Christmas for my own CHNC challenge extra for March at the same time).

Completely Christmas 2 is being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and for my design card I have used 'holly berry with ribbon' that they kindly supplied. This image had a white background, so I played around digitally with transparency features until I was able to layer the image on to part of a fairy image that I had found free on the internet, originally using it for the purple creation you can see here, changing the colours and adding the text before printing out and layering on to a card blank.

I coloured the holly berry image with a mix of copics and spectrum noirs and then added glossy accents here and there (and  waited impatiently for the GA to dry!).

I've used at least three of the colours for 52 Christmas card throwdown:



This is also for:

The 12 months of Christmas card link up
Paper makeup 130: anything goes
Through the purple haze 31: use a digi
Just inspirational March: anything goes
Sister Act 47: anything goes
Left of center 1st anniversary: anything goes
Make it Monday 181

  16. Thank you for joining our Anything Goes Challenge over on the Left Of Centre Creative Challenges.
    This challenge is to celebrate our 1st Birthday...

    A really lovely and traditional winter scene Christmas card. The darker colours in the holly works well with the softer image colours.

    I really hope you will join us for more of our future fortnightly Challenges. There are always great prizes to be won from our wonderful Sponsors.

    <3 & Hugs
