All three cards use images from Bugaboo... I find them a fabulous source of images to colour in a hurry... and with a sense of humour (which I like in a Christmas card, as the rest of the season feels a bit like you're playing for Sheep Stations, lol) The first one is Stella Christmas - Fruitcake, coloured with Copics with Gloss on the "fruit" and glasses, Stickles on the ornaments and iridescent embossing powder on the fur trim on the hat. The red card is from my stash, the gold stickers around the edge of the image panel are also from my stash.
The second card uses Merry Christmas - Tree. coloured with Copics, Gloss on the ornaments and Stickles on the stars. The green mat behind the image is from my stash too, again edged with gold stickers - I have a gazillion of these things in my stash, it's nice to get some used!
The third card is covered in paper from a Kaisercraft's pad - can't remember the name, so I'm entering Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - more of the red card as a mat for the image panel; the image is JJ Christmas Cheer - On Blitzen! ain't she sassy? lol Moving Along With The Times says Girls Just Want to Have Fun, so JJ's IN! and Crafty Creations has Let's Party, so (hic) in there too. Sweet Stampin' has a Christmas in July challenge... we're in!
Once again I've coloured with Copics, Gloss on the glass, bubbles and JJ's glasses, Stickles on the headband and Sparkly Fluff on her tummy detail and tail. Christmas Stampin' All Year Long has a recipe challenge; 2 CS, 1 Image, 2 Embellishments, 1 Sentiment - I hope coloured cardstock and patterned card count as 2CS and "hic" counts as a sentiment :-)) I'll understand if it's too much of a stretch tho', lol
The polka dot ribbon from my stash, actually we got about a hundred metres of polka dot ribbon when we were in Malaysia a few years ago, it's some of that :-) Jingle Belles wants us to use something from our stash more than a year old, not a problem.... EVAH! The embellishment in the centre of the bow came from ebay.
That's it!! I told you they were very basic cards, still I'm sure they qualify for the following challenges: Bearly Mine Challenges has Let's Go Digital (no challenge at all for me!) and Through the Craftroom Door, Aud Sentiments and Charisma Cards have Anything Goes themes.
I'll be back in a few days with another offering, until then Happy Crafting, Donna
