Penny Black And More November – Anything Christmas

it’s time for a new theme at the penny black and more challenge blog and this month we’d like you to create ‘anything christmas’ as long as the focal point is a hand stamped image or large sentiment/quote; the only exception are the penny black stickeroos.

i used the new penny black cones & berries cling stamp on kraft, coloured with faber castell albrecht durer watercolour pencils and added some snow. to finish it off, i used one of the sentiments from the my favorite things set.

i hope you’ll come and play along – remember, you can use any company’s stamp for your focal point, just no digis please; a future guest designer will be selected from those who use a PB image and as always, you’ll love the prizes to be won from: Penny Black, Crafts U Love, Crafty Ribbons.

visit the blog for some holiday inspiration by my teamies. thanks for popping by.

Santa’s Elf

i really should be mass producing christmas cards but i’m avoiding it so i coloured today for fun and relaxation; this time i followed the My Favorite Things colour challenge no. 55

i made a one layer christmas card with autumn colours using one of the cute MFT BB Santa’s Elves that i coloured with watercolour pencils. the sentiment is stamped in brown and the tiny buttons are brown so i was able to use all the inspiration colours. i added glossy accents to the ornament, jingle bell and berries.

i’m also submitting this card to these challenges:
