It's Christmas already at Fab n Funky

 It's time for a new challenge over at Fab n Funky, and this week the theme is Christmas. It's good to have a reason to get started on those Christmas cards good and early don't you think?

Our sponsor this week is Dr Digi and they have a whole range of Christmas inspired digital images.
I decided to go with this very friendly looking Father Christmas  - I think he is just as I imagined he would look when I was a kid.

I love this image of him updating his naughty and nice list, but I found it might be a bit of a challenge because there was a lot of white in there. I tackled this by using variations on whitish shades using my Spectrum Noir pens.

So for the beard and notice board - Ice Gray 1 and 2

For the shirt - some of the paler grays from the BG (Brown Gray) spectrum.

Finally, I decided to make the scroll of paper look like parchment, so I went for EB1 and EB2 to get that look.

Finally, I wanted to make it look like he was in a room in Lapland so I found some digi paper that looks like floor boards and paired it with a beautiful paper from Polkadoodles Winnie's Winter Wonderland, which I thought made wonderfully festive wall paper!

So that is me, one step closer to Christmas!

I can't wait to see all of your lovely makes, so be sure to come and join us over at Fab N Funky.

Thanks very much for visiting today.
