Carol singers


This is my card for this fortnight's Christmas Card Club and the theme chosen by Sue P is 'carol singers'. I actually made a card with little caroling penguins for my own CHNC challenge 197 for yesterday and almost cheated with that, but thought I would make a new one for today (if you'd like to see that card please click on the link - and perhaps join in with my challenge to make a Christmas creation that shows something beginning with P.

I've used one of my favourite cute Christmas stamps, Penny Black 'joyous hymn', inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir and copics. I die cut the image with a scalloped nestie, brushing lightly with distress ink before removing the die.The background paper is from my Christmas offcuts box and the music ribbon was from Hobbycraft.

I used the Woodware sketch 38:

  16. Hazel, this is adorable! It definitely makes me ready for Christmas :) Your coloring is amazing, but my favorite part is how you distressed the inside of the scallop, I will have to try that. Wonderful to see you link up to the Die Cuttin' Divas :)
