Happy December! Yay! Hope you enjoyed opening your advent calendars this morning - I might be 31 but I still have one, hehe. Henry is very excited about his Thomas the Tank Engine one!
Here is my December card for the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog, made with a beautiful image from this month's sponsor Beccy's Place. Please do click on the link above to find out more about entering this month's challenge and the fantastic prizes up available.
I absolutely loved colouring this image, I truly did. I found it fun shading with the different red Promarkers, and it came together quite quickly. There is so much you can do with this image with regards to layouts and changing the size of the image, I'm excited to experiment further with my other Christmas card designs. I think this would also look beautiful on a kraft coloured background too.
I fussy cut the images and the mounted them to my card base using dimensional adhesive. The middle poinsetta has a double layer of adhesive to make it stand up slightly further (but would still easily fit in the post without having to pay extra postage). I used a little bit of my Wink of Stella pen on the middle of each flower too.
