Merry Christmas

   There is a new challenge beginning today at Creative Corner the theme of which is sparkle and shine.
   I matted red mirri card onto green hammered card. (The difference between the two does not show up well in the photograph.) I coloured the poinsettias image from Beccy's Place using Promarkers. I then added glitter to the centres using a Sakura metallic pen and gloss to the holly leaves using Sakura glossy 3D pens. Once this was dry I used Sakura metallic and stardust pens on the leaves. The greeting was cut from red mirri card using a Tattered Lace die.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Creative Inspirations - anything goes
   Cute Card Thursday - festive colours
   Digi Choosday - traditional Christmas
   Inky Impressions - traditional Christmas colours
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Creatalicious - merry Christmas
   Pile It On - use red and green
   Vintage Christmas - traditional Christmas

  4. This is a lovely Poinsettia image Crafty, but sadly the No1 rule at our Vintage Stamping Challenges is for the main element to be hand stamped: rubber, polymer, foam... but no digis.
