This week over on the Papertake Weekly challenge blog there is another fab sketch provided by DawnyP, and on A Spoon Full of Sugar the theme is non traditional christmas colours. I have combined these two themes to make the card above.
The image is by Lili of the Valley and I have coloured it with Copics using the following colours...
Bear - C1/C3/C5
Hat - R85
Parcels - C9/R85
The papers are by DCWV from a paper pad I got last year and they are layered with Doodlebug sugar coated cardstock, all I have added to embellisg this one is some DecoArt Glamour Dust to the fur on the hat in the image, some Stampin' Up "Basic Gray" taffeta, a couple of heart pins and a sentiment by Craftwork Cards.
I have been busy trying to finish my Christmas cards for this year...and I think I almost have enough...after this week I will have no more time for Christmas cards so if I don't have enough people will be getting shop bought (I tend to send those to people I know will only throw them away). This past few days I have done most of my Christmas shopping, some online and some in the local shops as I cannot face shopping in Milton Keynes shopping centre....it is fab, but I just can't stand the crowded shops, and hanging around waiting at checkouts. I think I only have about 2 or 3 gifts left to buy....
