By the light of the bulb

   Well the festive season is less than six months away now so I really must get a move on with making my Christmas cards as I have fifty or so to send. For this one I thought I would go for non traditional colours and also try the 'no line' technique with the image.
   I wrapped two strips of yellow ribbon round paper I had printed from one of Joanna Sheen's House Mouse CD ROMs and then matted and layered it onto orange core'dination cardstock and white card.
   The image is from one of Joanna Sheen's Christmas House Mouse sets of rubber stamps and I have coloured it using Promarkers and distress inks. it was then matted and layered onto a dark and then medium orange piece of core'dination cardstock before attaching to the card. the sentiment was also matted onto orange core'dination cardstock.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   I Love Promarkers - anything goes
   The Glory Of Christmas - lights
   House Mouse and Friends - anything goes
   Crafthazelnut's Christmas - make your mark
   Christmas Cards All The Year Round - non traditional colours
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra - anything goes
   Fab 'n' Funky - christmas

   Completely Christmas - anything goes
   Papertake Weekly - anything goes with the option christmas-ey
