CHNC challenge 263: another red card


The challenge for CHNC 263 this week is to use the colour red ... a little or a lot (every second Saturday in the month is going to be a colour challenge this year).

For my second card I have used Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet Kaz Kraftz Christmas stocking, coloured with spectrum noir pens, kindly supplied by another of our sponsors this week (I tried and tried to get a betterphoto, but couldn't - it looks as if the card is crooked, but it isn't).  I used offcut pieces that I found in my Christmas box, including the paper piecing on the stocking imag - the glittered silver strips were also snippets, not having a full length to go all the way across. The 'fur' on the top of the stocking has been glittered with stickles crystal ice:

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 112


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's  Bloomin' challenge 112: anything goes with a twist ... it's bloomin' cold out there - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge - it doesn't have to be for Christmas ... just depicting 'cold'!

The background picture is one that I rescued from a magazine or advertising leaflet (can't really remember, but I kept it because I thought it was too good to put in the paper recycling bin). I stamped the lovely Stampotique snowman by Jo Capper-Sandon, colouring with spectrum noir pens and cutting out carefully, spraying with stick and stay to place it on the main picture. The sentiment is one I've had for ages. I mounted everything on to a shiny black piece of card - unfortunately, you can't see any of the shine here.
