   This week the QKR Stampede challenge would like you to use non traditional Christmas colors, so I have used browns and greys and tried to create a look of the late 40's.
   The image is called Stockings hung (number 9003) and after colouring it using Promarkers I cut it out and using foam pads matted and layered it onto paper (which I thought looked like old-fashioned wallpaper) from my stash, core'dinations cardstock and white card. I then found some waste from a peel off greeting, matted it onto mirri card and positioned it over the fireplace where perhaps a mirror or picture would have been placed.
