Traditional Christmas Colours at OSCC

Hi everybody

My apologies for the lateness in getting this posted,  Events on Saturday just overtook me, and consquently I was not able to get around to it until Sunday.

We are looking for Traditional Christmas Colours at the  One Stop Craft Challenge  this week, and I have decided to use everything Tim Holtz to create my card, with a very traditionnal image, but not in his style.

I coloured a piece of card in the Festive Season distress inks, and then stamped the image with archival ink.  I have lightly coloured the bbig spray of holly with pencils.  The background consists of a panel run though a Texture Fades folder which I then lightly inked over and a Pine Tree die cut.  I coloured this with greens and browns before added distress stickles to get a frosty look..  The photo is poo because of the lighting - and the red looks pinkish in places.  Ugh!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

The Squirrel and the Fox - Christmas
Stamptacular Sunday - Christmas Glitz
Crafty Emmas - Traditional Christmas
Crafty Hazelnut - Traditional Christmas
Crazy 4 Challenges - It's Santa
Creations by Gill M - Red and Green

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
