ABC Christmas Challenge – Y and Z

Hello yet again. ABC Christmas Challenge has reached the end of the alphabet for this year. With the letters being ‘Y’ and ‘Z’ – Wendy is hosting and the themes are ‘Y is for Youngsters (for or featuring a child and/or ‘Z’ is for Zoom (mode of transport). Here is my card:

I stamped the image from Newton’s Nook onto Distress water-colour card, and used the Distress water-colour pencils to colour it in.

The best way for me to use them, is to take a wet brush and touch that to the pencil nib, then move the colour around each part of the image. Once this was dry, I used the matching die set to cut it out, and set it aside to create the card base.

I took a white panel, die cut a Hero Arts bauble shape then dry embossed that panel with a Simon Says Stamp embossing folder.

I created some hills with white card stock, and found a previously created blue ink smooshed panel. I fiddled with the placement of the panel, the hills, and the bauble until I was happy, then adhered this to a card base.

I added the van at a jaunty angle, then also added some dots of glue to the blue sky, parts of the presents and the tree on the van, and along the edge of each hill.

The sentiment is a previously foiled strip.

I hope you can come and join us with your Christmas makes – following our themes – and I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx

Hello there. A little break from posting for me, but I’m back with a new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is always ‘anything goes Christmas’. Here is my card:

I matted and layered some Lawn Fawn card stock – the foiled snowflakes – onto silver mirror card and teal card, then added a the die cut sentiment from Hero Arts.

I think the foil is enough shine and bling so I didn’t add any other jewels.

I hope you can come and join us – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery.
