C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #298 Christmas - Traditional Colours

Hi, Guys! It's Thursday already, and that means another CRAFT Challenge and this week we'd like to see your Christmas cards in traditional colours. So put away the lilacs, pinks and turquoises and get out the red, gold and green!!!

I used a lovely image, Triple Tree with Snow by one of our sponsors, DRS Designs. I coloured it very simply, using Inktense Pencels and blending the colour with a waterbrush. Then I added stickles to the snowbanks. I used a Spellbinders die to cut it out.

I used papers from the 'Vintage Village' stack by First Edition for the image mat and the background, and the ribbon is from stash.

We have two lovely sponsors this week:

DRS Designs

Sweet'N'Sassy Stamps

Go and see what my creative teamies have done with images generously supplied by these two sponsors! They will inspire you to begin your Christmas cards early - think how glad you will be in December not to have the usual orgy of Christmas card making!!!

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

That is a pretty scene you have created and love the the die cut panel you have used to not only cut the image but mount it too. I shall pop along later with an entry. hugs Mrs A.
