CHNC challenge 184: make your mark


It's hard to believe that it's the first Saturday in July already and we've now gone past the longest day in the UK. I hope there's more summer to come - although the sunshine has definitely disappeared today, replaced by rain. Anyway, it's Saturday, so that means it's time for CHNC challenge 184: make your mark. I'm asking you to 'make your mark' - in other words use some markers, felt tips, pencils, paints, distress inks ... whatever you choose to 'make your mark' (you might even want to do some zentangle). Please click on the challenge link and join in the Christmas fun.

For my card I've used the lovely the gilded Christmas dove image kindly provided by one of the sponsors, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and more, colouring with a mixture of blue and lilac spectrum noir pens. The background paper is from an old DCWV winter pack - the snowflakes are glittery and shiny (don't really show up in the photo). The torn piece and the reverse of the paper under the stitched ribbon are snippets from Echo park 'winter wishes'. The sentiment  is a stray Hunkydory one - it says: Wishing you Peace, Love & Joy this Christmas'.
