Winter Wonderland Challenge

I came across this challenge blog a couple of weeks ago and thought it was a great way to start buliding up the Christmas cards, and avoid going in to Christmas overload, around about November.

So the challenge this week was a theme of Pink.

So here is my entry for the challenge. It gave me the opportunity to pull out my old DCWV 6x6 pad which I really love, and also a couple of Magnolia stamps that I picked up at the NEC a couple of years ago.

To create this image, I stamped the little girl, masked her, and then stamped the bench for her to sit on. This time round I have avoided alcohol (of the pen variety!) and coloured her in with my Whispers watercolour pens, and I am quite pleased with the effect.

I'm also entering this card for two other challenges:
  • Pear Tree Designs - Stamp Something
  • My Mum's Craft Shop - Something Old Something New (the old is the stamps and papers, and the new is my Whispers Pens.)

Well there we have it - still in June - one Christmas card hundred more to go!

Ho! Ho! Ho!
