Holiday wishes - The Merry Christmas Challenge #40

Wednesday October 25, 2017
Welcome to another fun challenge at
The Holly and Ivy team have cards to inspire you.
Check out the other DT images at The Merry Christmas Challenge blog..
Our theme is always the same.. ANYTHING GOES + CHRISTMAS
Digging through my dresser drawer in my craftroom closet I found this cute Christmas stamp.. I stamped the image from Co-motion stamps on Kraft card stock. I used colored pencils and blending solution (it's old.. it's not gamsol but something like it) Boy using the blending solution it really brightened up the color pencils on the kraft.. I added Ranger ink around the edge and the sentiment is from Simon Says. I added some Nuvo drops clear on the Christmas lights and Spectrum Noir to the light glow.  I hope you are inspired to make a Christmas card or two. Check out the Holly and Ivy DT over at The Merry Christmas challenge blog.

I love that boot - a great twist on a Christmas image, and I love how you have coloured it so that it looks like leather.

Thanks for sharing at Fab n Funky.
